The Birmingham Airport Community Trust Fund makes grants of up to £3,000 to community groups in areas most affected by the Airport’s operations. Each year we invest £75,000 in the Trust Fund, to which we add any charges made to airlines which breach our night noise regulations
To find out if your group may be eligible, follow these steps:
First, click here for a list of postcodes within the Trust Fund’s Area of Benefit.
If the address from where your project operates is on this list, you may be eligible. If not, then your project will not be eligible.
Next, take a look at the following questions:
1) Does your organisation have a Constitution or set of rules?
Why this is important: The Trustees will need to understand your organisation’s Aims and Objectives.
2) Does your organisation produce annual accounts?
Why this is important: The Trustees need to understand how sustainable your organisation is. Even if it is a small project or a new group, you must be able to provide even a basic Income and Expenditure Account.
3) Is your organisation locally managed and operated?
Why this is important: The Trustees will not make awards to organisations which operate nationally or internationally, even where an individual programme is delivered within the Area of Benefit.
If you can answer ‘yes’ to all of these questions, your project may be eligible.
Now read through the Community Trust Guidelines which will explain how the Trust Fund operates and how to apply.
