Northamptonshire 100 Fund




Northamptonshire 100 was launched in May 2010 and its aim is to bring 100 like minded businesses and individuals together into a ‘circle of giving’. Each member of the initiative donates a regular amount each year and part of this donation has been used to launch this new Northamptonshire 100 fund.


2016 Funding Theme is General Grants. Northamptonshire 100 Fund welcomes considering applications for projects that support people and communities in Northamptonshire across a variety of themes.


The panels next deadline is 19 May 2017.


Examples projects that apply for funding could include:

  • Community events and activities
  • Small scale training, rental and staffing costs
  • Small and large pieces of equipment
  • Support groups, wellbeing activity, enterprise and skills development activity
  • A whole lot more!
