Grants for Groups

Wiltshire Community Foundation offers a range of different grant funds for community groups and charities in Wiltshire and Swindon. The Foundation particularly awards grants to projects taking place in communities with limited financial capacity and benefiting people who cannot afford to cover the costs themselves. 

Below is the full list of grant programmes currently available. You will be able to read further information on the eligibility of each programme in the separate links.
