Grants & Awards Scheme
The Trust is very pleased to announce new grant and award schemes which will enable community groups and others help us in our objectives of improving the quality or understanding of the buildings, spaces, amenities and heritage of Leeds.
The Leeds Project Fund. We also want to support projects which will further the objectives of the Trust and benefit Leeds as a whole. We will be looking for projects which will have a wide impact and/or provide an exemplar for others, for example public art incorporating children's play in the city centre or an activity or publication celebrating Leeds. There will be a total of about £7,000 per annum for this fund.
The Snaith Award for Affiliated Societies. This is an annual award given for a project carried out or initiated locally by one of our Affiliated Societies and resulting in an enhancement, or enhanced understanding of the built or natural environment. We will be inviting nominations this autumn for projects completed in the previous 12 months up to the end of August 2017. Three awards will be made and announced at the Trust's Annual General Meeting:
- Gold Award of £500
- Silver Award of £300
- Bronze Award of £200
We are actively encouraging unaffiliated community groups who have carried out a project which might be worthy of an award, to affiliate to make themselves eligible (recipients of a Landmark Grant would not be eligible for a Snaith award for the same project and vice versa).
