The Mendip Hills Fund provides a simple vehicle for local businesses, residents and visitors to give something back to this very special part of Somerset, helping to conserve and enhance the special qualities of the Mendip Hills, and benefit local communities.
The fund will support local projects in the Mendip Hills area, including:
- Landscape conservation eg management of natural or historic features
- Education and interpretation projects to increase awareness, understanding and enjoyment
- Social and economic initiatives including enhancing community facilities and support for start up of social enterprises eg local food initiatives
Full details of grant criteria and how to apply will be available shortly on the grants section the SCF website.
90% of each donation will be used directly for project delivery, although larger donations may – with the express agreement of the donor – be used to build an endowment fund for the Mendip Hills area.
