Total Grants Available:

£1,000,000 (approximately) per year

Fund Provided by:

Mick George Limited through the Landfill Communities Fund

The Mick George Community Fund provides grants of between £10,000 and £50,000, although it is unlikely that individual grants over £35,000 will be made.

Unless by invitation, organisations can only apply for a grant if their total project cost is more than £10,000 and less than £100,000.

The Fund supports projects located in proximity to our donor’s (Mick George Ltd and recently acquired Frimstone Ltd) landfill sites and other waste treatment sites situated throughout the East Midlands and Anglian regions.

You can click on the magnifying glass and enter the postcode for your project location to confirm if it is within the boundary (within the blue lines). If your project falls within the red areas as shown on the map, unfortunately you are not in an eligible area to qualify for a grant.
