Apply to be a Co-op local cause

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 2018
  • benefits your local community

The co-op give preference to projects run by small, local organisations.

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.

If you’re successful

Successful projects will be notified in October.

You’ll be paid a share of the funding every 3 months, with the first payment at the end of January 2018 and the last in October 2018.

To apply you’ll need:

  • your organisation’s charity or HMRC registration number, or proof you’re an excepted charity, Scout or Guide group or registered Community Amateur Sports club
  • a description of your project and how much you want to raise
  • 2 contact names, including email addresses
  • basic details of your organisation and what it does, including approximate annual income
  • your organisation’s bank details – money from the fund can’t be paid into personal accounts

You can save your application at any time and return to it later. Applications must be completed by 8 August 2017.
