The Rowing Foundation has re-opened its grants programme. The purpose of the Foundation is to promote the participation in rowing of young people (those under 18 or still in full time education) and the disabled of all ages. The Foundation gives grants of £500-£3,000 (up to 50% of the cost of the project) to help British rowing organisations, clubs and schools for rowing equipment and whose requirements may be too small or who may be otherwise ineligible for an approach to the National Lottery or other similar sources of funds. Previous organisations supported include:
- St Breock Primary School which received funding towards the purchase of four oars;
- Monmouth Comprehensive School BC towards a double scull; and
- Stratford upon Avon BC for ‘Project Oarsome Refurbishment’.
The closing date for applications is the 8th October 2018.
