What is Grants For Good?
The Nottingham and Harrison Murray’s ‘Doing Good Together’ Grants Supporting Education, Financial Security, Homelessness and Employability
Please Note: Our Grants for Good scheme is now closed.
The Nottingham and Harrison Murray’s Doing Good Together Grants scheme is administered by Nottinghamshire Community Foundation and supports grass-root causes based locally to our branches.
Our aim in 2016 is to offer a number of grants, to aid projects supporting education, financial security, housing and employability for local people to help our local communities to prosper.
What we support
We believe that everyone should have access to a good education
So we’ll support projects that improve education for both young people and adults, specifically in numeracy and literacy, giving them hope and ambition for the future.
We believe everyone should have financial security
So we’ll support projects that help people to develop solid financial skills, manage their money effectively and avoid debt.
We believe that everyone should have a roof over their head
So we’ll support projects that reduce homelessness, support homeless people and help provide affordable, quality housing.
We believe in helping people become more employable
So we’ll support projects that provide proper job training and skills, access to relevant qualifications and help finding jobs.
We will focus our resources on supporting grass-root causes and the organisations providing services, volunteers and information to the people who need it most.
