Canterbury City Council’s RISE (Resilient, Informed, Sustainable and Engaged) grants programme supports not-for-profit organisations in making positive improvements to the local Canterbury communities.
There are two grants available:
Strategic Grants, of up to £30,000, are aimed at organisations that are already achieving good outcomes for the local Canterbury community, and want to take their work to the next level. This includes:
- projects that have outcomes that are aligned with the council’s strategic grant priorities
- core funding for organisations whose strategic aims closely align with the council’s strategic grant priorities.
Pre-application Advice Workshops: 31 October and 7 November 2019. Email Canterbury City Council (email@example.com) for more information and to reserve your place.
Deadline: Monday 18 November 2019, 5pm.
Improvement Grants awards grants of up to £30,000 to help not-for-profit organisations working in the voluntary, culture and sports sectors in the Canterbury District with less than six months unrestricted reserves.
Grants will be awarded for organisational improvements that support long term sustainability and resilience.
This fund can be used to supplement core running costs for a short period of time but this will only be considered as part of a longer term development plan to improve the operational resilience of the organisation. All projects will need to clearly identify sustainability plans after the project has ended.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme. If you are applying for less than £5,000 a decision will be with you within approximately six weeks of the receipt of application.
If you are applying for over £5,000 and your application successfully proceeds to the next round you will be invited to meet with the Council within four weeks of the application submission and have a decision within eight weeks. Please note these timing are just a guide and will be dependent on the specifics of your application.
