Funding and Fundraising

Co-op members get 1% of everything they spend on Co-op products to give to a local cause that matters to them. The Co-op Local Community Fund is inviting applications from voluntary and community groups to be one of the causes for their next round of funding, running from March to September 2017

You can now apply to be one of these causes for the next round of funding, running from March to September 2017.

They are looking for 3 projects in each of around 1,500 local communities across the UK. They will choose projects led by small, locally based organisations that:

  • benefit the local community centred around Co-op food stores and funeral homes
  • have the greatest possible benefit to their community
  • make maximum use of the amount of funding available

You can apply if you’re

  • a registered charity
  • a small charity registered with HMRC for tax
  • a registered community amateur sports club
  • a church that’s an ‘excepted’ charity
  • a Scout or Guide group

The closing date for applications is 16th December 2016
