The Gannett Foundation is the charitable arm of Gannett Co Inc., owner of the Newsquest Media Group. It provides funding to support local organisations in the area where Newsquest operates in the UK – including large parts of London.
Community Action Grants suppport projects which take a creative approach to issues such as education and neighbourhood improvements, economic development, youth development, local problem solving, assistance to disadvantaged or disabled people, environmental conservation and cultural enrichment. Typically grants are made for projects which merit awards of between £5,000 and £10,000.
Applications must be submitted on the approved application form, which may be obtained from your local Newsquest newspaper office. UK Grants are made once a year, in the autumn – dates are published in local Newsquest newspapers.
