University of Aberdeen launches Local Community Fund

University of Aberdeen launches Local Community Fund

From today, August 18, the University of Aberdeen is inviting local groups to apply for funding of up to £1,000 to help fund community projects and support the area in its recovery from the pandemic.

The University of Aberdeen Local Community Fund is open for applications from groups who may be looking for a funding boost to develop community activities, projects or events as part of the University’s commitment to support local communities in Aberdeen.  

The Community Fund welcomes applications for funding of between £100 and £1,000 from local community groups and not-for-profit organisations for projects and community activities that will benefit people living or working in the following areas: Tillydrone, Old Aberdeen, Seaton, Woodside, Stockethill, Ashgrove, George Street, Froghall, Powis and Sunnybank.  

The aim of the fund is to assist local groups with the delivery of projects that address issues including mental health and wellbeing, skills development, food and fuel poverty, increasing resilience and using community spaces to increase physical activity.  

Professor George Boyne, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University said: “Since 1495, the University of Aberdeen has been open to all and dedicated to the pursuit of truth in the service of others. We still have that purpose. 

“As part of our 2040 strategy we continue to look outwards and build partnerships with individuals, communities and organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors. The disbursement of the Local Community Fund will reinforce that commitment by connecting with our friends and neighbours to help build a resilient community.” 

Eligible organisations can apply to the University of Aberdeen Community Small Grant Fund by completing the application form which can be found here or by emailing communityfund@abdn.ac.uk.  

Completed application forms should be submitted to communityfund@abdn.ac.uk by the 5pm on 30 September 2021. Electronic submissions are preferred but hard copy applications will also be accepted in advance of the deadline, please contact communityfund@abdn.ac.uk or visit the website for more information.
