Apply for funding

When and how do I apply?

Applications are considered at regular intervals throughout the year, usually in June and December. Call the The Community Foundation For Staffordshire  on 01785 339540 or visit to download an application form.

What can be funded?

Grants are currently awarded between £100 and £1000. This amount may change as the fund grows. Grants can be awarded to and for volunteer led community and voluntary groups. These groups must be based in Lichfield District (according to the boundaries of Lichfield District Council) and must meet the needs of, or provide a service for, the local community. They must have been active for at least 12 months prior to the date of application and have an income of less than £30,000 per year as an average of the past 3 years.  Finally, their primary beneficiaries should be people ‐ i.e. not animals, plants or the environment and they can’t be solely commercial organisations, political parties, promote religion or benefit asylum seekers (for whom separate funding streams apply).  For more information visit:
