To Absent Friends - remembrance grants available
To Absent Friends has set up a small grants fund to support organisations to put on remembrance events as part of this year's To Absent Friends festival. (1-7 November 2020.)
Two types of small grants (of up to £250) are available:
Community grants: These are for organisations and communities who want to plan private remembrance events at which their community can come together (online, outside or in small gatherings) to share memories, stories and solace.
Public grants: These are for organisations who want to organise an interactive public event (online, outside or in a large public space) such as a concert, exhibition or installation, freely open to members of the public.
Who can apply?
Any organisation with a bank account can apply for a grant. This includes charities, community groups, care homes, NHS organisations, small businesses, prisons, arts organisations, schools, and education institutions.
The closing date for applications for this fund is 31 August 2020.
