Lovewell Blake Fund

The Lovewell Blake Fund supports community and voluntary activity in parts of Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.   Applicants in Norfolk should apply via Norfolk Community Foundation, and in Suffolk via Suffolk Community Foundation.

Applications for projects in Ely and the surrounding area are invited through Cambridgeshire Community Foundation

Grants of up to £2,000 are available for charitable, voluntary and community groups that are addressing social need.  The Fund aims to benefit smaller, often lesser known organisations where such grants would make a real difference to a particular project – making possible something that would not otherwise happen.

Grants can be spent on a specific activity or small capital costs.

Please note that costs associated with larger capital projects will not be considered. Salaries will not be supported but short term costs to pay a facilitator or instructor will be considered.
