The ABS Foundation and the Community Foundation for Calderdale will be supporting 12 *small volunteer-led charities who deliver vital services in Calderdale.

Every month, between May 2019 and April 2020 the ABS 19/20 Fund will make an award to one fantastic small volunteer-led local charity.

*By small we mean a charity with an annual turnover of £50,000 or less.

About the Fund
Each of the 12 successful charity applicants will receive £950.00 towards a specific project then, at the beginning of May 2020, one of the successful 12 charities will be chosen to receive an additional £10,000 worth of funding (£5,000 from ABS and £5,000 from the Community Foundation)!

Applications are now OPEN and will close on 29th March 2020.

If your charity receives an award from the ABS 19/20 Fund you will not be eligible to apply for another award from the same Fund however, you can apply for other CFFC funding.

A panel made up of ABS and CFFC employees will make the final decisions of the successful organisations on a monthly basis.

The decision will be based on:
1. The quality of the application
2. Expression of the need
3. Where we see the funding will have the greatest impact.

Ideally, the eligible organisations will not have paid staff and will meet CFFC eligibility criteria. To determine the impact, the current CFFC guidance and scoring system will be used.
