Uley Community Spirit grant scheme

Introduction

It’s always been our intention to use surplus funds (profits) for good causes within our community. The Management Committee is delighted to open another annual round of Uley Community Spirit grants, a scheme which distributes a portion of our profits to Uley and Owlpen charitable organisations by application.

How it works

How it works

UCS provides grants to its community’s charitable organisations for projects or equipment that will benefit Uley and Owlpen residents.

The amount of money available is determined as a percentage of our previous year’s profits, ie the pre-tax profits declared in our 2019-20 accounts, and we aim to distribute the money this year by the end of March.

Application forms may be downloaded from the link below as well as Grant Guidelines.  The deadline for receipt of completed applications this year is Thursday 31 December 2020 and we are aiming to notify applicants of the decision by Thursday 21 January 2021
