Exeter Small Grants Fund

The Exeter Small Grants Fund will support groups and organisations with a one-off grant of up to £2,000 to help run events, festivals and projects that aim to encourage community participation.

This fund can also be used for a one-off purchase or repair of equipment.

Awards will be for a maximum of 80% of the funding target.

As part of your match funding, we will consider counting the projected hours of volunteer involvement for the delivery of the project. We value a volunteering hour at £10. You will need to estimate the amount of volunteer time your project will generate. For example if you are having four volunteers each giving five hours to help support your project, simply times 4 x 5 = 20 hours at £10 = £200 contribution to your project.

Applicants will need to demonstrate that there is community support for their project and that it meets one of the key priority themes.

 We are keen to support new groups and projects that haven’t previously applied for funding through Exeter City Council before, particularly local and small grassroots groups.

Deadlines & Dates: applications will be reviewed on a monthly basis, with no closing date.
