After a tough time recently, we’re stepping in to give something back to the grassroots sports clubs we love. Proud To Pitch In is an initiative from Greene King IPA, paying cash grants to grassroots and community sports clubs across the United Kingdom. The aim of this fund is to support sports focussed projects that positively impact their club and/or the local community, and would tangibly benefit from funding. The fund is particularly focussed on sports projects that have a long term impact. Examples of projects that have previously received funding include: - Renovations of a club’s facilities making them more inclusive and accessible - Coaching qualifications and referee courses - New equipment The fund is open to applications all year and grants will be distributed regularly. To be eligible for funding, projects must be located in the United Kingdom and project beneficiaries must be aged 18 or over.

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. If you want to apply for this fund, make sure your project has the right criteria: tick the ‘Physical health and sport’ focus area and limit your funding request to £4,000. 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.
