UK Community Foundations – Infrastructure Fund


In response to the coronavirus, the UK Community Foundations is making a £250,000
Infrastructure Fund available for BAME-led infrastructure organisations that can help other BAME led organisations apply for National Emergency Trust (NET) grants though their local Community Foundations.

Grants of between £50,000 and £20,000 are available to fund work such as the mentoring/supporting of groups; awareness-raising via marketing and communications; support with monitoring and reporting; the provision of micro grants to enable applications for NET funding through community foundations; and to help build relationships to help community foundations identify and address barriers to funding BAME-led organisations and communities.

Applications can be made on a rolling basis and will be considered by an independent panel every week with awards made as quickly as possible thereafter.
