Last opportunity to register for Gannett Foundation grants
THERE are just two days left for charities to register for a chance of a grant of up to £10,000.
The Gannett Foundation is giving projects which promise long-term benefits for their communities the chance to secure thousands of pounds of funding.
The foundation, which is the charitable arm of Gannett Co Inc, the parent company of Newsquest Media Group, owners of The Press, favours projects that demonstrate good planning, oversight and financial responsibility.
A foundation spokesman said: “We value projects that bring lasting benefits to communities served by our local newspapers and websites.
“While preference may be given to ideas which create a durable legacy for the community, we will consider single events or projects of limited duration that otherwise meet our criteria.
‘‘Decisions in respect of the value of the funding will be made by the trustees and based on the evidence submitted.”
Previous charities to benefit from the foundation include Brunswick Organic Nursery, in Bishopthorpe.
The nursery, which works with adults who have learning difficulties, was awarded £9,550 in 2011 to buy equipment to help to train people to work as gardeners in the community.
The closing date for this year’s applications is Friday.
