Deadline For Grant Applications 16 March
Gatwick Airport Community Trust (GACT) can help your local community group to make 2020 a year to remember!
If you know of a local project that could do with some financial support, go to www.gact.org.uk.
Check to see if the project is eligible and if it falls within the Trust’s area of benefit, download the application form and send it to the address on the form.
Now in its 19th year, this independent charity has helped change many local lives and improved a wide range of community facilities across the area of benefit in parts of East and West Sussex, Surrey and Kent. During that time hundreds of projects in local communities around Gatwick Airport have benefitted from funds.
The Trust is keen to support schemes that benefit diverse sections of the local community and are targeted towards the development of young people, the arts, sporting facilities, environmental improvement and conservation, improvements to community facilities, volunteering, the elderly and the disabled.
Grant applications are assessed by a board of nine volunteer trustees who all bring local knowledge and expertise to the Trust ensuring that the money is used to the maximum benefit of the local community.
A map of the area of benefit can be viewed at www.gact.org.uk/area.php together with a full list of towns and villages in the area.
