The CAF Tourle Foundation Fund

Funding priority

Organisations must be able to evidence that the project will be delivered to local people, whilst demonstrating the need and difference it will make.

Areas considered may include:

  • projects with a community led ethos – this may be born from a community challenge or idea and run by  members of the local community
  • organisations that find it difficult to attract mainstream funding
  • projects demonstrating the organisation is providing something which would not otherwise be available locally
  • projects demonstrating the organisation is doing great work that they are not recognised for.


Funding rounds are announced on their website
