CCF Made By Sport ” Clubs in Crisis” Grants

CCF Made By Sport ” Clubs in Crisis” Grants

As part of a UK wide initiative, Cheshire Community Foundation is delivering this grants programme on behalf of Made by Sport to support and save clubs (meeting the criteria below) based in Cheshire and Warrington from closure – and to get them back on their feet, following the pandemic.

Clubs or organisations which intentionally use sport to deliver wider social outcomes. The organisations we are looking for operate mostly in disadvantaged communities, often working collaboratively with other partners to meet local need, and may offer cross-sector activities.
Specifically, we will fund clubs and organisations which can demonstrate that they are using sport to
work towards one or more of the programme outcomes outlined in the Programme Criteria and FAQs for Applicants.

  • Organisations must be able to demonstrate that the pandemic has adversely affected them, either operationally or financially, and which require funding to save, resume or adapt their activity.
  • Organisations with an annual turnover of up to £75,000 with the following priorities:
  • Priority 1 – Up to £25,000
  • Priority 2 – Up to £50,000
  • Priority 3 – Up to £75,000
  • Organisations promoting sport primarily for young people ages 5 – 25.
  • The priority must be on those organisations that have less than 10% of their membership outside of this age range

Grant size
Grants of between £1 and £2,021  are available to be spent by the end of  October 2021.

Whilst the funding is unrestricted, MBS would like as far as possible for it to:

Be used by grantees as match funding to leverage other funding, where possible – or be used to ensure sustainability of clubs, post the pandemic, where possible.
