Could Your Group Use £300?
Our Next Community Cash Event coming to a community near you!
Kincardineshire Development Partnership have been offering local community groups the chance of up to £300 micro grant to support their group or project since 2016. With a difference… The community decides which group or project will receive the grant.
There have been many events held across Kincardine and Mearns where local community groups are invited to come along to give a five-minute talk about their goals, what they are trying to achieve and why they need to the grant to further their idea or project. One grant is awarded to the group voted for by the guests of the evening who are members of the local community.
This exercise in real-time democracy has been a great opportunity for groups to raise an on the spot funds to support their group and the local community. In addition, it has proven to be an excellent way for groups and individual to learn about and make links with their communities, which has been a particular positive outcome of these events.
If your group or organisation could use £300 look out for news of our next event here or in our weekly Bulletin.
