Funding Available from Fidelity UK04-May-2018
Fidelity UK, in association with Kent Community Foundation (KCF), is again providing funding for projects which help the young or disadvantaged achieve their potential.
Established in 1988, with their principal donor being Fidelity Worldwide Investment, The Fidelity UK Foundation takes an investment approach to grant making: They look to fund strong charities where it is felt they can add long-term and durable value.
Grants of between £5,000 and £20,000 are being made available to small or mid-sized registered charities in Kent. The funding is mainly for charities helping socially disadvantaged young people achieve their potential, and grants are only awarded towards one-time setup costs.
Fidelity is particularly interested in hearing from planned enterprises that would let charitable organisations gain new heights of achievement, as their grants are intended to strengthen charities and encourage the highest standards of management and long-lasting achievement.
To be eligible, applicants are asked to show how they will use the funding to achieve important and determined results in terms of new levels of realisation, effectiveness and long-term success.
The funding is being managed by the Kent Community Foundation (KCF) on behalf of The Fidelity Foundation.
The KCF has advised the deadline for this season is 11th June 2018, with further dates to be announced later.
