A fund for LGBT+ projects run by, and for the community
Bristol Pride Community Fund has been created to provide opportunities and activities which enhance or improve the lives of LGBT+ people in Bristol and the surrounding areas.
We provide small grant funding to individuals, collectives, organisations or small charities to deliver projects that address issues that affect us all, help under-represented groups reach out and help LGBT+ community events that just need a little support.
We offer grant funds up to £500.
In exceptional cases where a clear need has been identified, we will accept applications up to £1000.
We fund projects that:
* Tackle LGBT+ discrimination and / or hate crime.
* Celebrate the lives, diversity and/or achievements of LGBT+ people and/or communities.
* Foster understanding and relationships between people from diverse backgrounds, including LGBT+ people.
How your project meets those targets is up to you – we are open to your ideas! Some examples, but not by any means limited to, are:
If you have an idea, we’d love to hear from you!
You can submit your application at any time in the year. Our Community Fund panel meets in March and October to decide who to award grants to.
Deadlines for these panels are:
● 28th February for the March panel
● 30th September for the October panel
