A renewed focus for our communities
Sutton Giving are linking with the well-established Sutton Community Fund to ensure that funds raised are effectively allocated to voluntary and community sector organisations. Read more about Sutton Community Fund.
We are delighted that Sutton Giving will be able to focus its giving to young people and families as outlined in our priorities and in doing so will be able to build on the funding that Sutton Community Fund allocates to projects working with young people by generating additional resources.
Recent analysis of the distribution of funds by Sutton Community Fund has evidenced that approximately one third of funds has been allocated to this audience of young people and families.
This funding is a perfect opportunity for a renewed focus on this sector of our community, shining a light on the most vulnerable in our borough whilst setting the challenge of doubling the amount allocated through match funding.
How will grants be awarded?
Sutton Giving will award funding to projects that can best demonstrate that they meet the needs of vulnerable young people in our borough. It is anticipated that funds will be allocated twice a year.
The application process will include a short written application and a more formal ‘pitch’ style interview with a Sutton Giving funding panel for those candidates who have been successfully shortlisted.
The Sutton Giving panel will include members of Sutton Community Fund panel and members of the Sutton business community who have donated to Sutton Giving.
Further details of the application process will be made at a later date.
