Go For It Grant

The Huddersfield Town Foundation Go For It Grant is a grants scheme funding small, local, community-based projects in Kirklees.

This brand new Go for It Grant allows organisations, youth groups and charities to benefit.

Grants will be issued to projects that demonstrate benefits to their local community, and provide long term benefits to the local communities. Wherever possible we are looking to support projects that are original and innovative.

Grants up to the value of £1000 will be issued per application.

To be eligible for a grant groups must demonstrate a genuine community focused project and complete our short application process.
