Community Groups Encouraged to Apply for Special 5,000 Award

11 May 2015

MBSCF 5,000 award

Monmouthshire Building Society Charitable Foundation is giving community groups and organisations the opportunity to apply for a one-off funding award of up to £5,000 before Friday 29th May 2015.

The Foundation is happy to accept applications for smaller amounts of funding up to £1,000, but for organisations who would like to purchase more expensive items, but perhaps lack the funds to do so, this is an ideal opportunity for them to make their funding dreams come true.

Application forms, which include eligibility criteria, are available from any Monmouthshire Building Society branch or agency office, or by clicking here. All applications must be received by Friday 29th May 2015.

Since 2000, Monmouthshire Building Society Charitable Foundation has contributed over £160,000 to 262 organisations and charities. In the last financial year alone, the Foundation provided support to 33 local groups, representing a significant contribution to local communities. Back in 2013, three teams of First Responders received over £5,000 to purchase defibrillators and a bike which has helped them to increase their support for communities across South Wales.

Penny Reeves, Chairman of Monmouthshire Building Society Charitable Foundation, said: “The Foundation has made a significant impact to a diverse number of worthwhile organisations and causes in local communities over the past fifteen years. We’re delighted to have the opportunity to bestow a more substantial financial award than normal to one lucky local organisation who we consider to have a worthy need. We invite any local organisation who meets our eligibility criteria to apply for this award of up to £5,000.”

The Foundation is happy to receive applications from all walks of life, such as the arts, education, youth groups, the elderly, the hospice movement, the environment, support groups, carers and sports groups. The Foundation also welcomes any donations or bequests from individuals. The more funding received, the more local organisations and charities will benefit.

Full information and guidance on how to apply can be found in the Foundation’s application form. Copies are available from any Monmouthshire Building Society branch or agency office, and can also be printed off from the Community section of the Society’s website.
