At the March Town Council Meeting of 5 October 1992, Councillors resolved to adopt consistent criteria in the allocation of grants/donations to charitable and voluntary organisations giving priority to individuals or organisations offering voluntary aid to promote the development of sport, cultural and social opportunity within the area of March. Organisations who believe that they meet the criteria must complete the ApplicationForm and will be eligible for consideration on a quarterly basis, one application per year.
During 2020/21 year donations totalling £2,500.00 were made to the following organisations:
Cambs County Council £ 500.00
MAGPAS £ 500.00
Relate Cambridge £ 500.00
These are made to established organisations that benefit people within the local community and are considered by members when the budget is set. During 2020/21 Grants totalling £3,500.00 were made as follows:
Volunteer Centre Fenland £ 750.00
Fenvision £ 250.0
East Anglian Air Ambulance £1,000.00
Talking Newspaper for the Blind £1,000.00
Parkinsons UK £ 500.00
In addition to grants and donations local organisations can benefit from financial support from the Mayors Charities fund.
