The Open Fund – which supports the social, educational, cultural and physical wellbeing of people living in Charnwood – allows applicants to apply for up to £750. 

To apply for the Open Fund, please complete the online application form and send to Sadie Gration by emailing

Alternatively, applications can be posted to: Sadie Gration, Corporate Communications, Hazlerigg Building, Loughborough University, Loughborough, Leicestershire, LE11 3TU.

All applications should be submitted no later than Friday 2 November. Please note the University receives a large number of applications, so not all projects may receive funding.
