Fund details & criteria

Fund purpose

Community benefit distribution of surplus revenues from New Mains of Guynd Solar Park CIC is a 5MW solar park owned by Empower Community Foundation and located at Carmyllie, Arbroath, Angus. Assisting with the the most compelling current needs of the local community remains the focus of this funding, having donated £100k over the last four years to Voluntary Action Angus, Angus Carers Association, CAFE Project, Edinburgh Science Festival school programme, Angus Care and Repair and Carmyllie Hall. ------ Applying for funding on ActionFunder is a bit different. Here’s the process: sign up, register your organisation and post a project you want funding for. Your project will automatically match with any funds you meet the criteria for (grant amount, location, focus area). If you want to apply for this fund, make sure your project meets the criteria. Your project will remain live on the platform (ready to match with new funds) until you successfully win funding. ActionFunder’s all about saving you time so that you can get on with what matters: community action.
