£100,000 Community Chest funding each year for projects that will make a difference to the lives of Phoenix residents
Do you have an idea for a project that will help our community? Then the Community Chest could make it a reality.
Who can bid?
Anyone is welcome to bid. That includes Phoenix residents, local businesses and voluntary organisations. All you need to do is demonstrate that Phoenix residents support your idea and that the project will benefit people in our area.
Types of grant – There are two different types of grants to choose from:
•Smaller grants – up to £2,500
•Large grants – from £2,500 to a maximum of £20,000
All bids are taken to an evaluation panel which will include Phoenix residents, young people, Board members and external representatives from the local Ward Assemblies and Voluntary Sector.
The panel decides which small grant applications will be funded.
Large grants are awarded subject to a two stage process. At stage 1, the evaluation panel will review and score all applications. The highest scoring projects will proceed to stage 2 where they can promote their projects to residents, before tenants vote for their favourite projects to determine who will receive a share of the funding.
