Co-operative Community Funding

Community Grants

If you are part of a community group or organisation, you could apply to us for funding. You must be a member of The Midcounties Co-operative and your group must be working in a community where there is a Midcounties store. You can apply for a grant from us of up to £2,000. 
As a co-operative business we are working with ten of the UK’s Community Foundations and welcome their support and local knowledge in helping us to fund even the smallest grass roots projects.
From the criteria to the judging of applications, which is done by members of our Membership Strategy Committee, we make all of the decisions about which groups should receive funding.
