I hope you’re all keeping safe and well during these times.
Ahead of grassroots sport’s return next week, I wanted to make you aware of some exciting news we have, which we hope can be of benefit to you and thousands of grassroots sports clubs and organisations across the country.
From 12th April, our ‘Clubs In Crisis’ fund, worth over £4million, will be open for clubs across the country to apply for an unrestricted grant of £2021, which can be used on anything the clubs believe will help them to keep going as we return to play.
You are welcome to nominate your club for funding when the application process opens next month, but in the meantime, I wanted to ask if you could help us at Made By Sport to promote the fund.
On Monday (29th March) we want to make as many clubs aware as possible of the funding and I wanted to ask if you could share the story with local clubs and organisations that may also be interested in receiving some funding.
All you had to do is tell them about the fund from Monday and direct them to www.madebysport.com/clubsincrisis – where you will be able to find all the eligibility criteria and also how to apply via our friends across the UK Community Foundations Network!
I sincerely hope we are able to award funding to some of the fantastic work you do in the near future.
