Grant News

Kent Community Foundation (Kent)

Kent Community Foundation (KCF) grants support a number of primary issues in the county, contributing towards everything from specific projects to everyday running costs.

In order to maximise the impact of KCF’s grant making to support the people in greatest need, four overarching grant making themes have been established:

  • Employability, Skills and Enterprise: Projects which raise the aspirations and increase the skills and opportunities of people who are far from the labour market.
  • Employability, Skills and Enterprise: Projects that help vulnerable adults stay well and independent, with a focus on early intervention projects to tackle disadvantage, deprivation and social exclusion.
  • Elderly & Isolated: Local projects that address the challenges faced by elderly adults and support people to stay well, healthy and independent and, most importantly, combat social isolation.
  • Children, Young People & Families: Projects that are making a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in Kent and Medway.

Priority will be given to groups with an annual income up to £1 million; grants of up to £5,000 are on offer (£7,500 considered for exceptional applications).

Themed Programmes are open all year round and decisions are made every 3 months. To be in time for the next assessment date apply by the 31st August 2020.
