Skipton Community Fund

About the Skipton Community Fund 

The Skipton Community Fund will support local (Guernsey and Jersey) charities and events. 

The Fund will grant money to local organisations with a specific project that will benefit the wider Island community.  The Fund will accept applications for grants from both Jersey and Guernsey organisations up to £1,500.

We hope this will allow us to help smaller, innovative charities and organsiations, where a small amount of financial assistance will go a long way. Therefore, only those with a project size of £20,000 or less may apply for a grant, where the project’s primary objective is to help individuals from Guernsey or Jersey. 

Guidelines:

To apply for a grant from the Fund you must be a non-profit organisation, looking to carry out a project in either Jersey or Guernsey to benefit the local community. A project may take the form of an event, exhibition, or fund-raising scheme. The budget of your proposed project should not exceed the sum of £20,000.

Skipton are unable to provide grants to any of the following:

  • Commercial organisations, commercial galleries, commercial enterprises, & exhibitions with a commercial slant or individual artists’ commercial projects.
  • Projects serving only specific sectors of the community based on ethnic, racial, political or religious grounds.
  • Projects that may be construed as discriminatory.
  • Day to day running costs for a prolonged period of time.
  • Projects with no community element.
  • Projects which contradict Skipton International’s brand values.
  • Appeals for funding of projects which are not based in Guernsey or Jersey.
  • Appeals towards running costs including rent of staff wages.
  • Projects aimed at restoration or upkeep of buildings.
  • Appeals for holidays, residential trips or overseas travel.

There must be at least two months from the date of your application to your proposed project.

Should you be successful in receiving a grant, you are agreeing to Skipton publicising the event on their website and social media platforms, as well as allowing the local press to cover the project.
