Loughborough University Donations Fund – Inside Out Fund

The Inside Out Fund supports University members of staff working to support community groups and organisations. Applications are welcome for projects that link to the themes of health and wellbeing, sustainability and inclusivity. These are core themes of the current University strategy


  • Available to University staff
  • Organisations/groups must be non-political in nature
  • Projects that link to the themes health and wellbeing, climate change/sustainability and vibrant/inclusive communities are particularly welcome for 2024 applications 
  • Only specific/identifiable projects will be considered (rather than, for example administration costs)
  • Projects/activities that increase engagement between the University and the community would be particularly welcome


  • Successful organisations will be required to provide the University with feedback on use of the monies awarded within six months of the award
  • The University anticipates that monies awarded will normally be spent within six months of the award, but certainly within 12 months
  • All applications will be considered on merit. A decision to fund a particular project does not necessarily mean that a project of that nature will be automatically be supported in the future
  • The maximum bid is £500
  • The deadline is 7 June 2024
