About the Calor Rural Community Fund

It’s all about your community and your local project

What is the Calor Rural Community Fund?

Is your community project sitting off the mains gas grid, and in the need of financial support? You can apply for funding from Calor’s Rural Community Fund to give your project the boost it deserves.

Now in the fourth year of running this amazing fund, we’ve already supported 73 inspiring projects; some weird, some wacky, but all inspiring. From community centres and village halls, to beach wheelchairs and defibrillators, Calor’s Rural Community Fund has met the needs of hundreds of people from all across the UK.

So how does it work?

Rural communities with projects off the mains gas grid are eligible to apply for funding. Projects with successful applications will be published on our website where the public will then have their chance to show support to their favourites.

The projects that receive the highest scores in each funding category will then become finalists, and will go on to be reviewed by a panel of impartial judges who will score each project and select the winners.

We’ll reopen for applications in 2021. Please register your details to be kept up to date.
