The National Emergencies Trust has launched an appeal to raise funds to help local charities to support those individuals suffering hardship as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. The National Emergencies Trust will distribute money raised through a number of charitable organisations including local Community Foundations, to ensure it reaches those who need it most.
Community Foundations are well placed to support local charities to overcome challenges presented by this ongoing emergency.
The Community Resilience Fund will support organisations who are helping those most affected by the Covid 19 outbreak with grants up to £6,000. We are also supporting small groups who may not have a bank account or constitution apply for a grant of up to £1,000. If your organisation needs extra funding to help you support our Calderdale communities who most need help please send an email to Rob Billson, firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application form.
The NET funding is in addition to our Community Resilience Fund. The criteria for our local appeal is to initially offer grants to support local charities on the front line helping the most vulnerable in Calderdale.
You can donate by visiting our Local Giving Page or please contact Steve Duncan on 01422 349700 if you wish to support the Fund or make a donation directly into the Foundation’s bank account at the Yorkshire Bank – Sort Code: 05/04/49 Acc. No. 70400958
Community Foundation for Calderdale relies on the generosity of individuals, businesses and public sector organisations to help local people to gain the support they need while investing in a brighter future for all.
