Kent Community Foundation’s (KCF) Coronavirus Emergency Fund offers emergency funding of up to £10,000 to small frontline voluntary and community organisations in Kent and Medway to deal with the ongoing issues communities have dealt with because of Covid-19.
Priority will be given to smaller constituted community groups e.g. charities/CICs, with an average annual income of less than £200,000.
KCF are particularly keen to support organisations who are reaching people in Kent and Medway who have lost jobs because of the pandemic and are supporting them either with financial/practical/benefits advice or around employability/re-skilling/raising confidence etc.
Requests for workplace adaptations will also be considered.
Funding can be spent on core costs, service delivery costs, overheads, small capital costs – anything directly related to the impact of this virus.
Organisations that have already received emergency funding from KCF are welcome to apply again, but only if they can demonstrate a real need for additional resources to deal with the on-going impact of the pandemic.
Please note: Where an applicant has more than six months of free reserves, KCF would expect them to be utilising some of those monies in this time of crisis. Reserves are built up to be accessed in high risk scenarios.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme
