Apply For A Grant

It’s not all about money and this isn’t a purely transactional decision.

Tees Valley Community Foundation offers a wide range of options made up of money from the many different funds we distribute on behalf of our donors, partners, companies and public organisations.

We match applications to the criteria of the various funds available at the time and are able to support the activities of many different kinds of community groups and charities.

We welcome applications of up to £1000 from any suitably constituted, not-for-profit group.

John Bloom Law Bursary

The John Bloom Law Bursary was established in memory of John Bloom, a local solicitor and a Trustee of the Foundation. John was passionate about his chosen profession and about the area in which he was born and worked. 

His widow set up the Bursary in memory of John with the aim of providing financial assistance to students who have chosen to follow a career in Law.

The Bursary supports students intending to study for a full time undergraduate degree in Law at a UK University. The successful candidate for the bursary will be expected to obtain good 'A' level grades and will be from a background of modest means. A bursary of £6,000 (over 3 years) will be awarded to a student who might otherwise struggle to find the necessary funding to pursue their chosen career.
