Background Information: The year 2018 marks 10 years since the opening of the arena and convention centre in 2008. The venue’s 10th Birthday also ties in with the city’s year-long plans to celebrate a decade since Liverpool’s reign as European Capital of Culture. To celebrate, The ACC Liverpool Group fundraising champions have set a target to raise and donate £10,000 throughout 2018 and support 10 charitable organisations.
What are the objects of the fund: The fund wishes to encourage local community groups and voluntary organisations to apply for grants for projects aimed at supporting and targeting children, young people and families, social isolation, education and learning, communities and housing and homelessness.
How much is available: The budget is £5000 and the Foundation is looking to fund five projects of up to £1000 that clearly meet their criteria and can make a significant impact in the community. The deadline for applications is 25th May 2018 however as there are limited funds available and we do not want to disappoint too many applicants the fund may close earlier so we recommend you apply as soon as possible and we will keep you updated via our website and social media.
Which areas are covered: Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral
