Grants Scheme

Voluntary and Community Grants Scheme.

Small amounts of money allocated by Penzance Town Council to support local organisations within the community, with emphasis placed on how the money would benefit Penzance or Penzance residents in general.

Please note that grants are generally only available to Penzance based organisations, but we will consider grants to organisations not based in Penzance that can show that they are directly working with or on behalf of Penzance residents.

Applications for grants are considered by the Finance & General Purposes Committee at their regular Committee Meetings (see meetings page for dates of meetings)
