Condor Ferries is to donate £20,000 to Channel Islands’ charities and organisations this year through the relaunch of its grants based initiative.
The Condor Community Fund will provide up to £2,000 for individuals and organisations and is aimed primarily at environmental, sustainable and community-based projects. The applications process launches today with successful recipients notified in mid-July.
Greg Yeoman, Condor’s Commercial Director, confirmed the fund is aimed at Channel Islands’ organisations and hopes to see many requests from across the Bailiwicks: “This is the fourth time we have run the Fund and judging by the applications received in previous years, there are some great examples of community projects and initiatives being undertaken.
‘We are happy to hear from individuals and groups from all the Islands. Many give up their time for community activities and we would like to support their efforts in making a real difference, not just now but into the future.”
The process comprises of an online submission followed by an assessment of each application based on set criteria. These include sustainability, benefit locally, enjoyment for others and how the work will continue after completion.
Organisations that can apply include community groups, unincorporated associations, cooperatives, schools, social enterprises, individuals and amateur sports clubs.
For details of the Condor Community Fund and how to apply, these can be accessed through the company’s website.
