Severn Trent Community Fund have some exciting news to share with you about their plans for their Community Fund next spring.
Severn Trent are really proud to have partnered with Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games as its Official Nature and Carbon Neutral Supporter. Together they’ll assist their pledge to leave a carbon-neutral legacy – because when we look after nature, it benefits your water too!
To help maximise the legacy of the partnership, they are temporarily refocusing their Community Fund in spring 2022 to specifically support projects that help communities all across the Severn Trent region reduce carbon and care for nature.
Non-profit organisations and local community groups with an income of less than £500,000 (averaged over the last 3 years) will be able to apply for a grant of £5,000, £10,000 or £20,000 to support their new community project linking to one or more of the following themes – green spaces, recycling and making the most of resources and water saving heroes. Organisations from across the Severn Trent region will be eligible to apply for support for their new project idea.
Applications will open in January 2022 and in March our Customer Panel will review and shortlist the projects. The finalists will then go to a public vote in April with successful projects being awarded in May.
For more information click here or organisations can find out more and register their interest on our website at www.stwater.co.uk/community-fund-care-for-nature.
They’ll also be holding funding workshops to share more details on eligibility from late December and throughout January and February – interested groups can sign up for these through Eventbrite here!
