Commenting, the UK Community Foundations’ Interim CEO Rosemary Macdonald said:
“This extraordinarily generous donation will enable community foundations to reach the people who most need assistance throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Each community foundation has an in-depth understanding of their local area, what the priority needs are and how best to address these issues, so they can ensure the funding goes where it is most needed and can make the most impact.”
A list of local community foundations is available on the UK Community Foundations website.
Groups should contact their local community foundation for further details about what funding might be available to them and how and when they should apply.
