Guidance on our standard application process, and how to get help. We’ll also explain what to expect after an application is submitted, and what our requirements will be if a grant is awarded.
Most of our Funds use a standard application process which requires you to complete an online form – if you are unable to apply online, please contact us and we will help you apply by other means.
Our online application aims to be simple and easy to use – there are help notes throughout (click on the ‘i’ icons next to the questions) and you can save your work as you go. You can attach as many documents/ files as you need to the online form to support your application – if you prefer to send by post or email, you are welcome to do so. If you have any general or technical questions about the form please do get in touch.
We are making every effort to reduce paper in our grants process, so you can help us by sending as much information electronically as you can – we appreciate it!
The full application should be submitted to Norfolk Community Foundation by 5pm on the deadline date stated for the fund you are applying to – this includes the supporting evidence as well as the application form itself, so please ensure you have all the documents you need ready.
We may not be able to accept late applications, or those that are incomplete at the deadline, so give yourself plenty of time to send everything in.
Some Funds are open on a rolling basis and can accept applications at any time – your application will be presented at the next opportunity where this is the case. Where deadlines do not apply, you should ensure that all the documents required to complete your application are received no later than 14 days after completion of the online form. We reserve the right to reject incomplete applications after 14 days.
