Multiple Year Funding

We recognise how important it is for individuals to be able to plan for the future and that having secure funding can give you the confidence and reassurance to further develop and progress into education and work. Powys Community Endowment Fund now offers individuals the opportunity to apply for multi-year funding of up to 3 years but will also continue to offer 1 year funding.

We hope to be able to make at least one three-year grant per year. To be considered for a three-year grant please give a break down on the funding you need per year. Your application will still be considered for one year funding if you are not successful with a three-year grant.
