Organisation Application FAQs

Q. Can a Limited Company apply?

A. In general Grants are not given to private companies. Organisation Grants are for Not-for-profit organisations, social enterprises, or local Groups that are constituted and have a suitable dissolution clause.

Example of a suitable Dissolution Clause:

DISSOLUTION

(a) The Group may be dissolved by a resolution passed by a simple two-thirds majority of those present and voting at a Special General Meeting.
(b) If confirmed, the committee shall distribute any assets remaining after the payment of all bills to other charitable group(s) or organisation(s) having aims similar to the Group or some other charitable purpose(s) as the Group may decide.
*Dissolution simply means what will happen if your group closes down (dissolves). Part (a) sets out how many people must be present in order to dissolve the group, and part (b) sets out what will happen to any resources that your group has if it dissolves.

Q. We are an organisation based outside the area and have run a successful project working with young people. Can we apply for funding to replicate this project with young people in BLDY10 area?

A. Yes. As long as the project is within the DY10 area.

A. Yes. The programme is open to Not for Profit organisations as long as the project benefits the residents of the DY10 area which covers the Horsefair and parts of, Broadwaters and Greenhill. Social enterprises are businesses that trade to tackle social problems, improve communities, people’s life chances, or the environment. They make their money from selling goods and services in the open market, but they reinvest their profits back into the business or the local community.

Q. Our organisation is based in BLDY10 ran a project during the summer with funding secured from Awards for All. We applied for funding for £5,000 but the project cost £6,000. Can I apply to this programme for the £1000 overspend?

A. No. This funding cannot pay for retrospective costs. This project has already taken place so is therefore not eligible under this programme.

Q. If you submit an application as part of a group can you also apply as an individual?

A. Yes. The organisation is one legal entity and will be responsible for the funding awarded should it be successful and the specific person will be responsible for an Individual’s award should it be successful.
