Keighley Community Chest Funding

How to apply

Applications should only be made on the forms which you can download from this page. The form should be returned to Keighley Area Co-ordinator’s Office.

Applicants should use the spaces on the form as provided. Additional information in support of the application can be added on separate sheets if needed.

Applications must be typed or clearly written (preferably in BLOCK CAPITALS). Illegibility may result in applications being returned.

Applicants must provide the organisations constitution (unless received with a previous application), latest audited accounts or bank statements, full details of the project to be funded including a detailed expenditure list, and at least two quotations (where possible) from suppliers for all costs that need to be met.

Incomplete application forms and those that do not have the above documentation enclosed will be returned to you.  Only fully completed application forms will be presented to the Grants Advisory Group.

Applicants are encouraged to discuss their ideas with a member of staff in the Area Co-ordinator's Office.

All monies given to a project, organisation or individual must be accounted for in full (for example, copies of accounts or receipts detailing how the money was spent).

It is a condition of the grant that all relevant documentation (a Memorandum of Agreement and cheque receipt) be completed and returned to the Area Co-ordinator’s Office, and a short report on the project be submitted within 6 months of the grant being awarded.

Any subsequent applications from a project, organisation or individual will not be considered if these conditions are not complied with.


Applications received after the closing date will be considered at a later meeting of the Grants Advisory Group.

You should normally expect to hear whether your application has been successful or not within one month of the closing date.

The Grants Advisory Groups decision is final. We do not enter into correspondence in regard to the decisions made.

The criteria for this funding can be found on the application forms.
