About Our Charity

How to Apply for a grant from our Trust Fund

The Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge awards grants to local, national and international charities and good causes as well as individuals. We generate our grant income from events we organise such as the annual Hebden Bridge Duck Race and Hebden Bridge Vintage Weekend. Each year the club distributes around £40,000 in grants to good causes.

Applying for a grant is a simple two stage process. First, complete an online form which asks for contact details, information about yourself/organisation and a short description (max 500 words) of your reason for applying for a grant.

At the second stage, applicants who meet the club’s criteria for funding will be invited to complete a more detailed Grant Application Form which will be considered by a committee of club members. The Projects committee meets 4 times per year. Deadlines for grant submissions to each meeting in the year from July 2019 are : 26/08/19,  04/11/19,  23/03/20  and  01/06/20.
Funding decisions are usually made within 4 weeks of each deadline date.

The Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge receives many more grant applications than it can fund; inevitably some applicants will not be successful. Grant applications where the club is not the sole benefactor and the organisation/individual demonstrates they have generated income from their own actions are particularly well received.

All applications are considered on their own merits.
