Small Grants Programme for 2023-24

Kent RFU is providing a number of ‘small grants’ to support clubs wishing to encourage participation by improving their facilities. 

Grant awards can be helpful in contributing to the fundraising that clubs are already carrying out to support their respective improvement projects – even relatively small awards can provide an exponentially beneficial impact to clubs struggling to raise funding during these challenging times.

We can offer grants between £500 – £2,500 towards works that deliver improvements to either player or referee’s experience at your club. An example might be that your club is considering utilising one of the current RFU offers, found at; https://www.englandrugby.com/participation/running-your-club/facilities/offers or the grant could be utilised as part of an important club refurbishment project by providing additional funding.

To apply for a Kent RFU Small Grant please download our form and submit it to: office@kent-rugby.org copied to club-development-chair@kent-rugby.org

Clubs are also reminded of the various financial support mechanisms that are made available by the RFU; https://www.englandrugby.com/participation/running-your-club/funding  – and which the County’s grants can complement.

Any Kent RFU Small Grant award is dependent upon the applying club having submitted an up to date Club Audit Form
