Contributions and Grant Aid

How to apply for a grant from Newbury Town Council

If you are fundraising for an organisation, and you fulfil the criteria below, you need to register with the Good Exchange (https://thegoodexchange.com/) in order for your project to be considered by Newbury Town Council’s Grants Sub Committee. The committee meets every June, and again in November, if the grant funding is not fully distributed in the June meeting. To ensure your project is considered, please register with The Good Exchange by the 21st October 2018.

CRITERIA FOR GRANT AID
 
Priority will be given to organisations which:

> Are based within the boundary of Newbury Town Council or which serve wholly or mainly the residents of Newbury.

> Would give benefit to the greatest number and range of Newbury town residents.

> Provide a benefit for the wider community beyond progressing the interest of its members.

> Have made an effort to raise funds themselves and are not reliant on donations to fund the total project

> Show a commitment to sustainability.

> Show a commitment to equality and diversity

In addition

> Grants will not be awarded to bodies for activities which are statutorily funded.

> Priority will be given to those organisations whose objectives meet the priorities and targets laid down in the Council’s Strategy.

> Preference will be given to organisations that have not received a grant from Newbury Town Council in recent years.

CRITERIA FOR SHORT-LISTING

> Application to the Good Exchange is complete and all required documentation received by the deadline

> Application assessed against the above criteria

> Short-listed applicants MAY BE invited to attend the scheduled Grant Sub-Committee meeting to make a short presentation and answer questions from Members of the Grant Sub-Committee.
