The ‘Open Fund’, which allocates a total of £5000, allows local community groups and organisations to apply for funding of up to £1000.
The deadline for bids is Thursday 31 May. Organisations applying for the fund must be non-political in nature and be situated in an eligible postcode, close to the Olympic Park. More information on the eligible postcodes and the application criteria is available on the Loughborough University Community Donations Fund website.
Bids should include a short breakdown of how the fund will be used and should include a specific project.
The annual Loughborough Community Donations Fund programme has run since 2009 and has since supported a large number of community groups and voluntary projects. Successful bids have previously included funding for Youth and Support Groups, Soup Kitchens and aiding local schools.
