Through our Strategic Fund we want to work with organisations who share our priorities and are interested in working with us to bring about positive change for Buckinghamshire. Our support for culture and sustainable food has specific priorities detailed on the funding theme pages.
Grant requests over £30,000 must be submitted by 1st March 2024. Grant requests under £30,000 may be submitted at any time.
Below you will find further application guidance and detailed eligibility criteria.
We have chosen our funding themes because they:
- Connect with the interests of Waddesdon Manor and Estate
- Support issues, sectors and demographic groups where there is evidence of significant need
- Focus on building a positive future and a resilient county
