Machrihanish Airbase Community Company (MACC) has announced the opening of the second round of its Charitable Giving Fund 2020 for applications.
The first round opened in April to help support community organisations during the coronavirus pandemic. The limit on these applications was £1,000 each and a total of £6,000 was awarded to community groups.
To date, MACC has awarded more than £55,000 in charitable donations and this round is expected to take that figure to more than £60,000.
Any not-for-profit or charitable organisations based or operating in the PA28 6 postcode area are welcome to apply. The fund has been designed to create a fair and transparent process to MACC’s donation policy and will be judged against predetermined criteria set by the MACC board.
Applicants must demonstrate alignment with MACC’s charitable purposes, specifically the following: managing community land and assets for community benefit; sustainable development; community development and regeneration; development of projects of particular benefit to the young and/or disadvantaged groups and projects that provide majority of benefit to the people of the PA28 6 area.
The second round of applications closes on Friday August 21 and decisions will be made at the company’s annual general meeting in September.
