Lovewell Blake Fund

A group of people walk in a field, their backs to the camera.

The Lovewell Blake Fund aims to benefit smaller, often lesser-known community based organisations where small grants can make a real difference.

Applicants from Suffolk should apply via Suffolk Community Foundation and from Cambridgeshire should apply via Cambridgeshire Community Foundation


This funding may be right for you if:
  • Your group is small and operates very locally.
  • The activities have a high level of volunteer involvement.
  • Your group needs new or replacement small capital items, such as sports equipment.
  • A grant from this Fund will pay for most of the costs needed.


This funding is probably not right for you if:
  • Your organisation is larger and operates countywide.
  • You are seeking funding for ongoing service delivery as the Lovewell Blake Fund will not support operational costs.
  • You are looking for funding to support salaries.
  • You are seeking a contribution towards larger capital projects such as play equipment or building work.
