Win £5,000 for your community

Posted by on Mar 11th, 2019 in Community News | Comments Off on Win £5,000 for your community

Your project. Your community. Calor’s Rural Community Fund.

It’s full steam ahead. Our fund’s topped-up. And your voters are at the ready. Applications for the Calor Rural Community Fund are now open and we couldn’t be more thrilled.

The weird. The wacky. The wonderful. We want to hear it all.

Excite us with your community project ideas and we’d love to pop some money in the pot.

So take a pew and submit your ideas to us by Monday 29th April.

What could your community do with £5,000?

Pen to paper, paper to planning… You’ve found the perfect solution to better your community. You’re raring to go. But the only thing is, you’ve come to a financial full stop.

It’s situations like these that motivated us to create the Calor Rural Community Fund. So every year we offer rural communities, that aren’t connected to the mains gas grid, the chance to gain funding for projects that will improve local life.

From the simply superb, to a well-needed refurb… We’re offering grants of up to £5,000 for projects that will provide an on-going service for local communities. And, as this is the third year running of our Community Fund (and since all good things come in threes) we’ve not only increased our total funding contribution to £70,000, but we’ve also partnered up with Crowdfunderto give you the opportunity to raise even more funds.

We’re here to help rural communities like yours lead the way.
