Kent Community Foundation launches Core Support Funding Stream

Kent Community Foundation recognises that frontline organisations invest a great deal of resource into applying for funding and sometimes find it challenging to secure funding for their core work and overheads.

In recognition of this, we are piloting a Core Support funding stream. 

What is it?

Recipients will receive £12,000 over a year (January 2018 – December 2018) distributed quarterly, upon receipt of satisfactory feedback. 

Who is it for?

In this pilot, we are focusing on six districts:

  • Ashford

  • Dartford

  • Gravesham

  • Shepway

  • Swale

  • Thanet 

Beneficiaries must be living in one of these areas.  We anticipate making one grant per district above. 

VCOs should:

  • Have had at least three KCF grants, with successful outcomes (where grant period has finished), in the last three years (since October 2014).  All due reporting must have been submitted. 

  • Have an average annual income over last three years of up to £300,000

What is it for?

The funding is for core costs e.g. utilities, rent, service delivery staff, support staff.  The funding is not for start-up costs, pump priming for new work or staff. 

Be aware:

If you are successful in your application for Core Support, you would be ineligible for further KCF funding during 2018. 

How to apply:

The application process is brief because we will have a lot of your details on file. Fill in this form and email to by 3rd November.
