About the Fund

We understand that communities need good facilities and that raising funds takes time and effort.  For this reason our Weston Anniversary Fund will award grants up to £150,000 to provide new or improve existing community facilities.

Typically we encourage charities to have a broad base of support and so we tend to be one of a number of funders of projects. Our Anniversary Fund however is different as we will consider funding the entirety of a project, or help to complete your fundraising, with grants ranging from £30,000 to £150,000.

Please read our Weston Anniversary Fund Application Guidelines carefully to see if your organisation and project are eligible to apply and how to do so. Please also read our FAQs carefully to answer any additional questions you may have.
