The Worthing & Adur Fund supports small charities and community groups working in Worthing and Adur. Grants of up to £1,000 are available and applications should be made on our standard Sussex Community Foundation application form.
The Worthing and Adur Fund was set up in partnership with the Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce. A number of local Worthing people and businesses were founder donors, each giving a minimum of £1,000. These donations established a core endowment fund, the income from which, as it has grown, has enabled the Fund to make grants to many charities and community groups from Worthing and Adur.
Grants given by the Worthing and Adur Fund in 2017 were:
|Adur Sea of Lights||£420||Adur Sea of Lights put on an annual winter lantern parade organised by a collective of enthusiastic Lancing residents. Funding is to help with general event costs.|
