Lincolnshire Community Foundation is pleased to re-open the Evan Cornish Grassroots Fund and would welcome bids, particularly those from locally run groups and organisations, who can apply for a grant of up to £5,000.  Applicants should seek to deliver services that benefit those who are vulnerable and/or isolated and live in Greater Lincolnshire.  Community groups, charities and social enterprises can apply for a contribution towards the costs of delivering support for people with mental health issues, older people, prisoners and their families, those who are unemployed, dementia support, victims of domestic violence and organisations that provide access to good quality food/food security projects, bereavement support, etc.  This is not an exhaustive list and if your area involved with a project, but would like to speak to a member of the team, please give us a call.

Applications from groups who’ve previously been successful will be considered, provided they’ve spent and reported upon the outcomes achieved.

The next closing date for receipt of completed applications is on 17 September 2021 with decisions likely by the end of October. To obtain an Application Form or to chat about your project, please contact Sue Fortune on 01529 305825 or by downloading details from the Grants Page at
