Funding: The Gannett Foundation

Gannett Foundation The Gannett Foundation provides funding to support UK registered charities in areas in which Newsquest publications are circulated. Newsquest publications cover most areas in the South West. A list of South West publications is available online

The Foundation supports projects which take a creative approach to fundamental issues such as cultural enrichement,education and neighbourhood improvements, economic development, youth development, local problem solving, assistance to disadvantaged or disabled people and environmental conservation.  Projects should bring lasting benefits to communities.

While preference may be given to ideas which create a durable legacy for the community, consideration will also be given to single events or projects of limited duration that otherwise meet the criteria.  

Typically grants are between £5,000 and £10,000. Grants are made once a year in the autumn.  Application forms are available to download from the Foundation’s website.
