Apply for funding
We are open for applications!
To apply for a grant of up to £1,000, please follow these steps:
- Read through the criteria and previously funded groups to decide if your group is in line with what Bristol Redistro is looking to fund.
- Make sure that someone in your group is up for coming to the funding day. All short-listed are groups invited to the funding day and will receive a grant of up to £1,000. You'll need to come to the funding day on Saturday 17 April 2021 to receive your grant. The funding day is an opportunity for groups to learn from one another and to decide together the best way for the grant money to be shared out. It may happen online or in person depending on covid restrictions at the time.
- We aim to tell you in around 2 weeks after the deadline if your application has been short-listed and to invite you to the funding day if so.
- Fill in the short application form and send it to us by the deadline of midnight Monday 29th March 2021 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- As this is a new project, we are asking for groups that participate to offer us feedback on the application process and suggestions for how to improve future funding rounds.
Our decision-making process involves previously funded groups short-listing applications and the final decisions being made by the short-listed applicants. We will therefore be sharing your applications with these groups. Please let us know if you have any questions about this.
Our aim is to continue fundraising up until the funding day. We’d like to let people know which groups have been short-listed and feel this might encourage more people to donate. If you are short-listed we will check with you if its ok to share this publicly.
Please contact us if you need any help or advice on filling in the application. We may be able to complete the application over the phone with you or in person, but as we are all volunteers this will depend on our availability. The sooner you get in touch the better!
