the Community Foundation for the people of Kirklees.

The Davy Fund

This fund aims to support voluntary and community organisations across Kirklees, to encourage the participation of children and young people in sport, with an emphasis on team sports and activities; in order to encourage positive development of that activity, and for the long term health and social benefits that results from such participation.

Recent beneficiaries have included the Isaac Atkinson Memorial Fund (Skate 4 Isaac), who were awarded £500 to help them establish a skate park.

This fund opens again to applications in September, 2019.

One Community makes grants to a wide range of organisations. The Foundation is particularly keen to help grassroots community groups, and small-to-medium-sized voluntary organisations, and priority will be given to these groups. We do not normally make grants to large local, regional and national charities. If in doubt whether your application can be considered, please contact us: (01484) 468397.
