Mick George Community Fund


Parts of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Milton Keynes, Northamptonshire, Norfolk, Rutland, Suffolk and Warwickshire.

Total Grants Available:

£750,000 (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.

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.

Important Note: The Funding Area is Changing after the 10 June Closing Date.

If you are planning to submit your application by the 10 June deadline, please view the map on the left. If you are planning to submit your application after 10 June deadline, your project must be located in the areas on the map on the right.

There are currently four funding rounds each year. However, after the 26 August closing date, this will reduce to two rounds per year. Therefore, there will be no November closing date as previously advertised.

Important Notes

The Mick George Community Fund uses an online application process. Applications in other formats will not, therefore, be accepted.

If your group is not able to complete an online application form due to specific communication requirements, please contact GrantScape so that we can help you with alternative arrangements.

Applications received after a closing date will be automatically submitted to the next funding round, if available.
