Apply for funding

Apply to us for a grant

Heart of Bucks supports charities and community groups in Buckinghamshire whose work benefits local people. We give grants and provide loans to a broad range of causes and welcome applications from both new and established groups.

Most grants are awarded at our Grants Panel meetings which take place throughout the year. We also manage a range of other grants programmes with their own priorities, criteria and closing dates.

Apply to us for a loan from Bucks Big Society Bank

As well as grants, our generous Council funders and private donors also enable us to offer community groups an unsecured, interest-free loan from our Bucks Big Society Bank fund. The decisions for loan applications are not subject to any timetable and can be made at any time depending on the need of the applicant.

Advice on other sources of funds too!

As well as being able to tell you if and how best to apply to us, we’re also keen to suggest other potential sources of funding that are available to you. The more money that comes into local communities in Bucks, the more likely they are to continue to thrive! Please contact us for more information.

If you have any questions, please contact our Grants Team at or 01296 330134.
