New Fund – Community Microprojects Fund!

We are excited to announce a new fund for members of the Finderne community.

If you, or a Finderne based group that you are involved with, have an idea for a small project that needs a modest amount of funding to make it happen then we want to hear from you!

Get in touch to tell us about your idea and we can consider it for funding under Finderne Development Trust’s new Community Microprojects Fund.

  • Funding of up to £1,000 available per micro project
  • Applications welcomed from individuals, constituted groups and unconstituted groups
  • No limit on project ideas – just so long as the project will benefit the Finderne community in some way

To apply, please contact our Development Manager, Jan MacPherson, to give an outline of your project idea, together with your proposed costings and funding request.

Your proposal will be brought to the next available board meeting for discussion, and we will endeavour to reach a decision as soon as possible. Anyone who is awarded funding will need to agree to publicity as deemed appropriate by the FDT Board.
