FAITHS IN SCOTLAND COMMUNITY ACTION FUND – ANNUAL DEADLINE FOR MAJOR GRANTS

Locally based faith groups that are registered charities can apply now for a major grant of up to £15,000 for projects that tackle poverty in Scotland’s economically poorest urban and rural communities.

The Faiths in Scotland Community Action Fund (FiSCAF) works with local faith groups in Scotland who are committed to working for change in their communities.

Groups should be tackling a particular aspect of poverty in the community, their work should be inspired by, and rooted in, faith, and they should plan to encourage the widest possible participation through their work.

To be eligible, locally based faith groups must be a charity registered in Scotland with a signed and dated constitution and a bank account and be able to spend the grant award within nine months of the date of the award.

Registered charities have until 30 April to apply for a major grant of up to £15,000, which may be spread over a maximum of three years, with no more than £7,500 being awarded in the first year.

FiSCAF also has a small grants scheme that supports small local community groups running on a shoestring budget and with limited staffing. Grants of between £500 and £2,000 are awarded four times a year.

In the last six years, FiSCAF has awarded grants totalling £265,622.

SITA TRUST: FUNDING TO ENHANCE COMMUNITY FACILITIES

Under the Sita Trust’s Enhancing Communities Programme Core Fund, grants of up to £60,000 are available to not for profit organisations, community groups, schools, parish councils, local authorities and charities for projects that make physical improvements to community facilities and historic buildings / structures. SITA will accept applications from projects which are within 3 miles of qualifying SITA UK waste processing sites. Grants of up to £20,000 are also available through their Fast Track Fund for projects with an overall cost of no more than £40,000. Projects on school or pre-school sites where the facilities will primarily benefit the school are not eligible. However, an application may be considered from a school if it can be clearly demonstrated that the wider community has significant opportunities to use the facility; the facility is run by an organisation that is separate from the school (although the school may be represented); and access to the facility for community use must be via an entrance that is separate from the school. The next closing date for applications is 10 am on the 15th April 2013 for the Fast Track Fund and 5 pm on the 22nd July 2013 for the Core Fund
