Community Fund

Background

The Denny & District Community Fund is a charitable fund to benefit residents of the areas served by the Denny & District Community Council in the Falkirk Council area. The Fund has been established with community benefit provided by Earlsburn Wind Energy Limited, the owner of the Earlsburn Wind Farm, Kingsburn Wind Energy Limited, the owner of the Kingsburn Wind Farm and Falkirk Todhill Wind Ltd, the owner of the Todhill Wind Farm. Groups and organisations working to benefit people within the Denny & District can apply to for grants from the fund.

At least £66,000 is available annually, rising in line with inflation. Funds roll over if they are not spent within the year:

 

Aim

The Fund provides grants to support charitable activities that:

  • enhance quality of life for local residents. 

  • contribute to vibrant, healthy, successful and sustainable communities.

  • promote community spirit and encourage community activity.

A wide range of costs and activities will be considered for funding, for example: running costs for local groups, staff or sessional worker costs, consultations, maintenance or refurbishment of community facilities.

Applications are particularly welcome from established groups that are looking to develop or enhance the service they provide, or new groups providing new opportunities that will address one of the three priorities listed above.
