Community Funding Criteria

The Purpose of Community Funding

The Community Fund was set up to support projects that will help communities or the environment within the Borough of Fareham. The first things we will consider when deciding if we are able to fund a project are:-

Who can apply?

Any community organisation or individual can apply for Community Funding. Organisations must have official papers that state that they are set up not to make profit. Applications from businesses will not be considered. Individuals must be able to show that they are applying on behalf of the community.

What can you apply for?

What we ask for

To help us to be able to consider your funding request and give you a swift answer, we ask for information and documents up front. These include things like a copy of your organisation's accounts (so we can prioritise our funding to projects that could not otherwise be funded) and a copy of quotes (so we can make sure your project is getting value for money). The full details of the information we request can be found on our checklist PDF (141 KB).

How to apply

Once you have checked that your project meets the criteria, simply talk your idea through with your Ward Councillor or contact the Leisure and Community Team directly (telephone 01329 236100 or email We will be very interested to hear about your project and discuss how we can support you to make it happen.

If you would like further information on how the funding decision gets made, you will be able to find this on the Process for Community Funding page.
