The Rotary Club of Faversham has been helping local & international causes for over 70 years. Now, probably more than ever, organisations who provide vital services and support to the local community need help.

We want to help you. The Rotary Club of Faversham Trust Fund has set aside a sum of money to assist local not for profit organisations who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applications are being invited for an emergency grant of up to £500.


The Criteria for being eligible to apply for this emergency grant are as follows:

  • Not-for-profit organisation or charity
  • Based in Faversham or the surrounding area
  • Have a bank account in the name of your organisation or charity
  • Able to demonstrate that local residents would lose, or have a significantly reduced, service if you are not awarded a grant.

Please note:

  • This fund is not open to commercial organisations or to individuals.
  • National organisations or charities may apply, but there should be clear evidence of funds being used for local benefit.
  • We are expecting a considerable number of applications and it may not be possible to award every applicant a grant or the full amount requested.
