The Phillips Fund

Environmental Local Grants

The Phillips Fund, administrated by Kent Community Foundation, offer grants of up to £1,000 to a wide variety of projects which aim to protect, conserve and enhance the use and character of the rural landscape and its communities.

Projects must benefit the wider community and have public access. Project ideas could include the following activities:

  • planting of native trees and hedging;
  • regeneration of hedgerows or village ponds;
  • creation of wildflower meadows or new native woodlands; and/or
  • restoration of local habitats.

The Fund will consider funding the cost of planting hedges, saplings, seeds etc. but the capital cost of equipment should not be a major part of the application. However the cost of hiring larger pieces of equipment or contractors may be considered for specialist jobs.

Deadline: Continuous rolling programme.
