Requesting Funding Proposals in Gloucestershire
*The call for funding proposals has now closed*
Thirty Percy is inviting proposals for the first round of funding under our new Gloucestershire place-based initiative. It is hoped that a greater impact can be achieved by concentrating funding, knowledge and expertise in one location.
We spent the best part of nine months visiting Gloucestershire talking to a diverse range of people to gain a better understanding of the local community need, building relationships and, most importantly, understanding how we might help.
Are you a mission-led enterprise based in Gloucestershire
A partner organisation within the Thirty Percy family is looking to make long-term investments in UK enterprises creating social and environmental impact. If you work for a mission-led enterprise and are looking for investment to grow from a collaborative, impact-first partner, please get in touch viathis form. They are particularly interested in working with enterprises helping support resilient, healthy communities in and around Gloucestershire, as well as enterprises with a focus on environmental sustainability.
We haven’t put a minimum or maximum limit in place intentionally. This is because we are aware that this automatically puts boundaries up and shapes the ideas and initiatives that get created. We want to allow the freedom for people to design what they believe is needed (taking into account our 6 core principles) and submit these with a realistic budget.
We have a budget of £3m to award for grants that are between 1-3 years in length. We will leave it up to each applicant to determine how much of this budget to bid for.
No. We are open to any organisation applying, however, you do have to clearly show in your work how you are linking in with other stakeholders and actors in the county and how you are including the voices of local people in the design of your work.
We completely understand the amount of time and work that goes into creating a truly collaborative and co-ordinated plan and would not be expecting large amounts of this work to have already been done prior to the application deadline. We would suggest you look to put in a collective proposal, with the other partner organisations, that has a co-ordinating/joint planning phase built into it.
CICs are eligible to apply, as long as the work we could be potentially supporting is charitable. If successful, we will include a clause in the grant agreement stating that our funds cannot be used as profits or removed from the organisation in dividends.
Please note that it is much easier if CICs are limited by guarantee rather than shares.
