Together Awards • General guideline on allowable expenses: • The primary purpose of spending Award funds must be to help meet the social aims of the project and to provide a learning opportunity for the applicant. • Capital Purchases: If you aim to buy general assets for their project (items costing over £100), we will ask that you get 3 quotes for the item and at the end of the project you return it to the funder or donate it to the community (e.g. school, community centre, charity) unless the project continues, in which case it remains with the project. • Funding from other sources: Please be aware that we will consider match-funding (giving 50% of your required amount, while another funder gives the other 50%), but it is unlikely we will consider partial funding, where we would be one of several funders of your project.
