The B&NES Community Contribution Fund is a pilot scheme that offers residents the chance to pay into a good causes fund to help local charity, community and voluntary groups to reduce inequalities in the area.
The scheme is administered by us, but is not used to supplement council services. Every penny contributed goes to fund local projects.
Any contribution is separate from your Council Tax, and you can contribute more than once. The minimum contribution is £5, and there is no maximum.
You won't be able to request a particular project or area where your money is spent, and the fund will be used for good causes across the district.
Read our Privacy Notice to see what we do with your data that we collect when you donate.
Other ways to make a contribution
You can also contribute by cheque. Make it payable to Bath & North East Somerset Council, and write Community Contribution Fund on the back. You can send it to: Lewis House, Manvers Street, Bath, BA1 1JG.
What happens next
Any charity, voluntary or community organisation that supports residents of Bath and North East Somerset will be able to apply to the fund from Autumn 2021. Priority will be given to projects that benefit the whole B&NES area, however we will also prioritise really good local projects that will have an positive impact on their communities. The fund will be open for applications from the 1st October and we will provide more information on how organisations can apply to the fund when it opens for applications.
At the end of the first year, we'll consult with residents and organisations on whether to continue the scheme in the future.
