Coronavirus Community Fund

The Foundation will prioritise:

  • Initiatives that directly support those most at risk as a result of the threat of coronavirus, and clearly evidence the need for support

  • Organisations with income levels of below £500,000 per annum

  • Running costs for organisations to provide such support, including volunteer expenses, staff costs, and transport; providing the organisation is focusing their attention on providing support to both existing, and any potential new beneficiaries

  • Small capital costs are eligible, providing the capital item will address the priorities of the fund, and is linked to keeping the older person connected to the outside world
