Mills and Reeve Cambridge Grassroots Endowed Fund
The Mills and Reeve Cambridge Grassroots Endowed Fund is invested and each year the fund makes small grants to support small, local voluntary and community groups and organisations that are undertaking charitable work in Cambridgeshire.
Grants are given to those projects helping people that face disadvantage and to those that engage and support local people, and therefore build stronger, healthier, inclusive and sustainable communities. The fund focuses around CCF's 'Improving Lives' funding stream which supports the following core grant programmes: Children and Families, Adults facing life crisis and Adults with health conditions.
The following are examples of projects that have benefited from grants from the Mills and Reeve Cambridge Fund:
Cambridge & Ely Child Contact Centres received a grant to help fund the coordinators salary.
Papworth and District Day Centre received a grant towards their activities of providing lunch, transport and outings.
Freedom Club Time Bank received a grant to buy new tools, refreshments and organising work sessions with homeless people
Cambridge Student Community Action was awarded funding for their young Carers Big Sibling project.
Relate Cambridge was awarded a grant to deliver one to one counselling support to children in the Castle School in Cambridge.
