Do you know a group or organisation that is working to improve lives in their community?

Buckinghamshire law firm B P Collins’ £10,000 nomination fund supports local charities and projects that are aimed at delivering positive social impact and improving lives.

Grants are available from £500 – £3,500. As long as the organisation nominated fits one of the objectives below, there are no restrictions on what the grant can be used towards; it may be for general costs, purchasing equipment or to support a community project.

Who can be nominated?

Registered charities or voluntary and community groups whose beneficiaries live in Buckinghamshire (excluding Milton Keynes). Organisations that have previously received a grant from this fund are eligible to be nominated again.

Criteria:

The organisation/project must meet one of three objectives:

  • Building stronger communities – Invest in spaces that encourage community spirit and reduce isolation
  • Providing better futures – Support and encourage vulnerable young children to prosper
  • Helping create safer lives – Reduce exploitation, violence or abuse

How to nominate:

This fund is now closed.

What happens next?

After the closing date, the nominations will be shortlisted and these organisations will be guaranteed to receive a grant. They will be invited to give a short presentation to staff at B P Collins in Gerrards Cross, who will then vote for the charities in order of preference. The amount awarded will then be determined by B P Collins.
