Skipton Building Society Grassroots Giving Fund
Community groups in Wales are being invited to enter an award-winning scheme which last year gave out £3,500 to the country’s good causes.
Now in its sixth year, Grassroots Giving was set up to support small community groups which might not normally attract any sort of funding. In 2018, a total of £82,500 has been made available to reward 165 groups.
Applications are now open and can be made online at www.skiptongrg.co.uk. The groups which make it to the shortlisting stage in August are then profiled by Skipton, the UK’s fourth largest building society, and then the public will be asked to vote for who they think is the most deserving.
As part of its Grassroots Giving initiative, Skipton Building Society has also launched a series of free resources covering a range of key areas for community groups, which can all be downloaded for free at www.skiptongrg.co.uk/free-resources.
