Anonymous donor pledges to help young people


In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, an anonymous donor has set up a new fund to support and inspire young people in Cumbria.

The Young Persons Opportunity Fund, managed by Cumbria Community Foundation, is open to charitable groups that work to support the development of young people, in particular those from challenging backgrounds.
The generous donor said: "In the best of times, many young people in our communities need inspiration to realise their full potential. The COVID-19 crisis has only added urgency to this, and the Young Persons Opportunity Fund seeks to help ensure that we do not lose the talents and energies of our young people".

Potential funded projects must have an emphasis on using the outdoors to expand horizons and self-confidence and work with specific groups of young people over a period rather than single one-off sessions or events. Funding will also support the development of leadership qualities in young people, especially those who have the potential to inspire their peer group and/or their own communities.

Annalee Holiday, Grants & Donor Services Officer at Cumbria Community Foundation, said: “This is a great example of local philanthropy and how people can support their community and local young people to enjoy for years to come.”

Grants will normally be less than £20,000 over one year; however, there is no minimum or maximum award amount. Grants may be a single award, or a series of awards paid over up to three years and dependent on progress.

If you would like to apply for a grant, contact Cumbria Community Foundation on 01900 825760. 
If you would like to know more about how you can leave a charitable legacy for your local community or a cause you care about please contact Andy Beeforth, Chief Executive on 01900 825760 or email andy@cumbriafoundation.org.
