How to apply

Grant applications for the year 2023 - 2024 are now open. To apply, fill in and return an application before 12 noon on Friday 4th November. 

Applications should be emailed to deputytownclerk@buckingham-tc.gov.uk

The Town Council offers both one year and four year grants. 2023 grant applications are for one year grants only. The Council welcomes applications from any not-for-profit group, and is happy to give advice and support to potential applicants. Please contact the office if you have any questions.

Who is eligible for grant funding?

Grant applications have to fulfill the following three criteria to be eligible for a grant.

  1. Grants will only be considered for projects and activities beneficial to the people of the civil parish of Buckingham.
  2. Grant recipients must be based in the civil parish of Buckingham or provide evidence of the percentage of the work that directly benefits Buckingham residents.
  3. Only not-for-profit bodies will be considered for a grant.

There is lots of scope for Buckingham Town Council to fund new projects, as well as to offer support to organisations that have been working in Buckingham for many years.

In the past the Council has funded projects for a wide range of activities. We recognise the importance that the many different communities in Buckingham bring, and we are keen to continue supporting diverse groups through grant funding. In the future, we are looking to support particular organisations that benefit those who are currently at a disadvantage: because of age, race, gender or for other reasons.

You don't have to have run an organisation or have applied for a grant before. If you have questions about completing the application form, please contact the office - we are very happy to help.
