The fund will consider applications from organisations based or working in Gateshead, South Tyneside, Sunderland, County Durham and the Tees Valley. Grants offered will range between £10 000 and £25 000 together with access to non-monetary support via existing Community Foundation initiatives including pro-bono support, Trustee Match and other external schemes.
The Community Foundation for Tyne & Wear and Northumberland has partnered with NorthStar Foundation, County Durham Community Foundation and Mercers’ Charitable Foundation to establish the Growth and Resilience Fund, a three-year programme. The current 2021 call is the final round of the scheme.
