The Fund will support projects or that can demonstrate they will deliver against the wider objectives of the Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust (parent charity).
These objectives aim to:
- Develop skills
- Improve health and wellbeing
- Relieve poverty
- Protect and conserve the environment
- Protect and promote heritage and culture
- Support active community engagement
WHO CAN APPLY?
Organisations, groups and individuals can apply and they must meet the eligible criteria as detailed in the application guidance notes, which can be downloaded on this page.
HOW CAN AN ORGANISATION APPLY?
To apply, simply download the application form from this page or contact the IGHT office who can post an application pack out. Application guidance is also available, and we recommend you use this to complete your application to ensure you include relevant information.
WHAT PROJECTS/ACTIVITIES WILL BE CONSIDERED?
Your application should detail clear outcomes from your project or activity. It should offer value for money and we will look for information on how you have arrived at your project cost. We will look for evidence of a need for the project as well as a demonstration of how the project will benefit the Gigha community. Above all, we want you to sell your project idea, so showcase your project and explain how you believe it delivers against the Gigha Community Fund priorities.
HOW MUCH CAN AN ORGANISATION APPLY FOR?
Organisations, groups and individuals can apply for up to £1,000. We do not expect to award grants below £100.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO ASSESS AN APPLICATION?
Applications will be accepted throughout the year, but it should be noted that the yearly fund will be divided into three rounds – January, July and October. This will help to evenly distribute funding throughout the year, allowing a wide range of organisations to submit an application. We expect that assessment of an application will take a maximum of four weeks, but if there is no funding available in that round, then the application could be carried into the next round of funding.
HOW WILL THE CLAIMS PROCESS WORK?
Grants will be paid out in a single payment once evidence of expenditure is provided. Applicants will be expected to complete a project completion form before monies are released.
HOW CAN I FIND OUT MORE?
You can download more information about the Fund by downloading the guidance notes. If you want to discuss an idea that you think might be suitable for the Fund, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
