The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead supports non-profit making voluntary organisations through its grants to voluntary organisations funding scheme.
Update January 2022: The 2021/22 annual grants round has now closed. At present applications are not being accepted for the 2022/23 financial year. Please check this webpage for future updates or contact the grants grants administrator
Revenue grants are awarded to support the general running costs of an organisation, to encourage new groups to be established and to increase levels of local civic participation and volunteering. Revenue grants are paid at the start of the financial year or once approved if in-year, or if over £5000 on completion of a Service Level Agreement (SLA).
Capital grants are made towards capital schemes i.e., the acquisition of land, the acquisition / construction / extension / improvement of a building and/or the purchase of equipment to provide new or improved facilities. Capital grants are paid on receipt of invoice and site visit taking place.

'3' Community Grassroots Grant Fund
The aim of the Royal Borough '3' Community Grassroots Fund is to provide grant funding to small voluntary and community groups and organisations in the Windsor and Maidenhead area, enabling them to continue or expand their work, including advocacy, community voice and service provision.
Any organisation operating within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and established for charitable purposes can apply, provided there is a formal structure which will allow for monitoring of activity.
The Fund seeks applications primarily from groups working with young people. Examples include homework clubs, skills development and activities relating to the prevention of crime, counselling, mentoring or volunteering, youth clubs, arts, culture or the environment.
