Poole Communities Fund was set up by a trust transfer from the Borough of Poole. The aim of the Fund was to provide long-term sustainable support to Poole-based charities and community groups. Many of these organisations provided vital services and support to vulnerable children and adults in the area.
The initial transfer of funds was invested in an endowment fund and the yield from it is distributed in the form of grants to Poole based projects each year.
In 2015 the grants from Poole Communities Fund were distributed through the Neighbourhood Fund as the chosen priority for the fund this year was older people. Since funding for Poole Communities Fund has been distributed through the Neighbourhood Fund. For more details on the Neighbourhood Fund please click here.
