The Tamworth Forever Fund was established to bring benefit to all community and voluntary groups in Tamworth. often these groups do so much good and need so little to get by, but get forgotten in the midst of larger charities. The Staffordshire Community Foundation, The Tamworth Herald, Tamworth Borough Council, Tamworth CVS and Enigma Communications have joined forces to ensure that there is a fund that will exist long into the future, to ensure that all of our groups benefit for years to come
Every year the Tamworth Forever fund will award grants to groups based exclusively in the borough of Tamworth. This is to ensure that whilst some organisations benefit from regular funding, lots of those smaller, but vital community groups, will have a sustainable source of funding long into the future. Often just a few hundred pounds makes a huge difference to the community. This fund works by 'strength in numbers', collating lots of smaller donations to make a huge impact on Tamworth.
Funding can be awarded to all local community and voluntary groups in Tamworth borough. Those groups such as playgroups, youth clubs, social clubs, luncheon clubs, local children's sports clubs, support groups, the list is endless. To these groups a few hundred pounds can make a huge difference, but help to keep them running for a year.
