Dorset Community Foundation has opened the third funding round for its Dorset County Communities Fund, designed to build the capacity of the voluntary sector and parish and town councils to support local communities.
Grants of up to £7,500 are available to charities and community groups based in the shire of Dorset (excluding Bournemouth and Poole). This funding round closes at 13:00 on 15 March 2013.
The fund will support new and distinct parcels of work, which must have a start and a finish date, a budget, and specific outcomes and outputs.
The first two funding rounds have distributed over £410,000 to 108 charities and community groups across Dorset.
The Community Foundation acts as a charity broker by connecting donors to the causes they care about, and also provides advice on strategic philanthropy.
