One of our responsibilities as a funder is to ensure that everyone has a fair chance to access our funds if they are eligible to.
We understand that there are some barriers that come with being an organisation for and led by, people who are black, Asian and from ethnic minorities.
In order to address this, our community foundation network leader UKCF have got together with the National Emergencies Trust, who are currently distributing emergency funds through our network, to make a separate fund available. The BAME Infrastructure Fund will work to help make sure BAME-led groups are supported in having an equal chance to apply for a grant from the emergency funding.
To find out more about how you can be funded to help support BAME groups or charities in Devon to apply to our Devon Coronavirus Response & Recovery Fund please follow the link: https://www.ukcommunityfoundations.org/news-article/bame-infra-fund or email firstname.lastname@example.org
