Canoe Foundation Funding
Funding applications are open to clubs, community groups, Parish Councils, Local Authorities or anyone in the UK with an active interest in improving access to water for recreational users and protecting the environment.
This should be organisations or partnerships with local paddlesport groups who will continue to support the use of the improvements on an ongoing basis.
Online funding applications are expected to be in the range from £500 to £10,000 and encouraged to be deliverable for summer 2021. Exceptional projects over £10,000 will be considered.
Grant payments are in arrears, on a direct payment, or pass-through basis. Matched or crowd funding is not essential but helps demonstrate the degree of local commitment to a project and to extend the number of projects that can be supported. More detail here.
We consider applications after each closing date, with the next review being for applications received by 28th February 2021.
Grants for projects that are able to commence quickly may be awarded before the funding window closes, so we encourage applicants to apply early. We are also keen to support projects that can be completed by Summer 2021
Please note our current focus is on:
- Increasing and protecting public access points to water for recreational users.
- Creation of sustainable launching and landing sites, to and alongside water, for all sectors of the community and abilities.
- Protecting and enhancing the natural environment.
