The Grassroots Giving programme was set up by the Skipton Building Society in 2013 to mark the anniversary of its 160th birthday. That year it offered 160 donations of £500 to local grassroots groups and organisations that are “passionate about making life better for others” but which get very little support elsewhere. The winners were chosen by a public vote.
Now in its fifth year, the Grassroots Giving programme aims to support local communities across the UK by helping grassroots groups and organisations that are passionate about making life better for others to continue to grow.
The funding is for community groups, clubs and organisations that only have access to limited funding from elsewhere.
Applications will be accepted from 1 May 2018 to 31 July 2018.
