How to apply

Kilgallioch Community Fund will support community-led charitable activities that support the rural regeneration and sustainability of communities in Wigtownshire and South Carrick.

There are two levels of award: Standard Grants, which are for between £500 and £10,000, and Large Grants which are for projects over £10,000.

Approximately £475,000 is available for distribution each year. Due to anticipated high demand on the fund, the fund is currently making a single round of awards per year, with the expectation all funds will be distributed in that round.

We welcome pre-application queries. If you would like more information on the Fund or to discuss your project proposal informally, you can contact the Fund by emailing info@kilgallioch.co.uk or phoning 01557 814927.

Standard Grants £500 – £10,000

The Standard Grants deadline was Monday 5th November 2018, for a decision in late February/ early March 2019. You can apply now for the next round but deadlines have not yet been set. Dates will be published here when they are available in spring 2019.

Guidance for applicants, including eligibility criteria, are in the Fund Factsheet which you should read before starting your application.

If you have read the Fund Factsheet and are ready to apply, you can register and access the online application here or alternatively a hard copy can be downloaded and emailed to us.

 Large Grants £10,000+

The deadline for Large Grants for 2018/2019 was 10th September 2018, with applicants informed in early October 2018 whether they are being invited to the next stage. A new round will open in 2019. Dates will be published here when they are available.

There is a two-stage application process for large grants. At the first stage, applicants submit an initial one page outline proposal. The Board will review all one page proposals and shortlisted projects will be invited to submit a full application.

Please ensure you have read the Fund Factsheet to check you are eligible and for guidance on what to include in your proposal.
