Thomas Flack Trust Fund
Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) is the trustee for the Thomas Flack Trust Fund, which offers funding support for projects benefiting the residents of Leatherhead, Ashtead, Bookham and Fetcham. The fund has limited resources and therefore funding applications up to £25,000 are advised. Applications can be made for both Revenue and Capital projects.
Revenue costs can include activities, events, running costs (excluding permanent staff costs), publicity, equipment, and start-up costs. Capital costs may cover community and sports building refurbishments, and large equipment costs for community benefit such as play equipment.
The Thomas Flack Fund for 2019/20 is now closed to new applications. It will reopen for 2020/21 in April 2019. Grant payments for revenue projects are made in April 2019. Grant payments for capital projects are made after April 2019 and on completion of your project and receipt of supplier invoices.
