Apply to be a Co-op local cause
The Co-op Local Community Fund gives money to local causes, helping to bring people together and make a difference.
To apply to be a Co-op cause you must have a project or event in mind that:
- takes place in the UK or Isle of Man
- doesn't have religious or political aims (although you can still apply if you're a religious organisation)
- meets the Co-op's values
- takes place or will still be running after October 2019
- benefits your local community
They will give preference to projects run by small, local organisations that make a real difference to people in their community.
You can't apply if your organisation is run for private profit. If you're unsure about your organisation's status check what types of organisations can apply.
You can't use money from the fund solely to pay for staff salaries or general running costs, or to make a donation to another organisation.
They will let you know if you've been selected in October and you can start promoting your cause to our members from November.
You'll be paid a share of the funding every 6 months, with the first payment at the end of May 2019.
