EDF Longpark

Community Fund

Background

EDF Longpark Community Fund benefits those living in the Parish of Stow in the Scottish Borders. It is provided by EDF Energy Renewables, who own and operate the Longpark Wind Farm, and is managed by Foundation Scotland.
The Fund was opened in 2010. An annual amount of £45,000, rising in line with inflation, will be paid into the Fund for the operating life of the wind farm.

A Community Panel, made up of people who live, work or volunteer in the parish decide how grants are awarded from the Fund.

Groups and organisations working to benefit people in the Parish of Stow can apply to the Fund. Your group must have a constitution (a governing document or set of rules) and be set up on a not-for-profit basis. It does not need to be a registered charity to apply.
