Skipton Community Fund

Skipton International bank seeks to add value back to the communities in which it operates, across the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey through major sponsorships and supporting smaller good causes through the Skipton Community Fund.

Skipton has a strong involvement with the arts and sporting communities on the Island through its sponsorship of the Skipton Swimarathon and an association with the Jersey Arts Festival. Through these events, the bank has been privileged to see first-hand the impact of kind donations from the Guernsey public and, as a firm, it wanted to do even more to help. To apply for a grant from the Fund you must be a non-profit organisation, looking to carry out a project in the Channel Islands to benefit the local community. A project may take the form of an event, exhibition, or fund-raising scheme.  The Fund will accept applications for grants from both Jersey and Guernsey organisations up to £1,500 per organisation.
