Here you will find information on applying for a grant with Northamptonshire Community Foundation. 

As a Community Foundation we are well placed to support local charities to overcome challenges presented by this ongoing emergency.  We will work to make sure the fund reaches the communities that need the most support.

Please note:

We are very pleased to announce that our grant application platform is being updated. This new system aims to improve your experience of applying for grants by having features such as allowing revisiting applicants to prefill parts of the application form, such as details about your organisation, as well as be easy to access on your mobile phone, tablet or desktop.

To allow for the changes to be implemented and tested, we will be closing grant applications to the following funds from the 23rd May to the 16th June:

  • The Constance Travis Endowment Fund for Northamptonshire
  • Poverty Hurts Fund
  • KHL Big Local – Community Chest Fund
  • The Margaret Giffen Community Fund
  • The Compton Fund
  • Northampton Queen’s Institute Fund
  • Winwick Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund
  • Yelvertoft Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund
  • Burton Wold Community Wind Farm Fund

Therefore, we encourage any organisations which are in the process of completing online application forms to either download pdf copies of their draft applications, which you can then use to copy and paste into the new forms, or complete and submit application forms if able to.

We thank you for your patience during this time as we make improvements to our system and if you have any questions, please contact our Grants Team via
