Judging your application
What we're looking for ...
Our team at Skipton sifts through all Grassroots Giving applications and reads each one very carefully. We guarantee a human reads each and every one.
> We look for applications from organisations or groups that show a real commitment to their local community, particularly supporting vulnerable people.
> We are keen to support volunteer orientated groups, who are used to relying on minimal funds and the goodwill and generosity of members - we know we can make a real impact here.
> We're looking for groups who are enhancing the lives of the neighbourhoods they are running within, as it's important to us to support people making a difference in communities across the UK.
> In reviewing all submissions for funding, we consider which requests in our opinion offer “the greatest chance to progress ideas and activities with a lasting impact.”
> We want our £500 to go as far as possible so are looking for groups with a real vision of how they would spend this money efficiently.
If your application demonstrates a lasting impact, you will be helping to build a legacy for your community project, and this is what we're looking to support.
We have provided a full list of criteria to help clarify what is and isn't allowed - have a good read of this before you submit your entry.
We hope to hear from you and good luck!
