The Vegware Community Fund gives monthly support to non-profit sustainability projects, with new recipients being added as Vegware grows.

The Vegware Community Fund offers support in two ways:

  • Product donation: a regular donation of Vegware’s eco takeaway packaging for use at fundraising events or by volunteers.
  • Monthly grants: a regular donation  of £20-200 (UK) and $25-250 (US), intended to contribute to core running costs and act as a basis from which to either focus on their chosen task, or apply for project grants

If you are involved in enhancing any aspect of your local environment or community, you can apply to the Vegware Community Fund regular funding by filling out the online application form below.

We accept applications for core funding all year round however, we will not be taking on any new regular recipients until September 2024. Therefore, the deadline for the next round of applicants is end of August 2024.

Online application form

1. Ideally, organisations should have been running for at least 12 months.

2. Applicants must have a UK or US bank account in the name of the organisation for payments to be made into.

3. Your most recent annual report and financial summary must be submitted along with the application.

4. We require a monthly update by the 5th of each month on what your organisation has been doing – this consists of a paragraph of text and at least one recent image we have not previously been sent. These will be used publicly in Vegware’s communications channels, online or in print, and shared via social media. These also serve to publicise your organisation, and we encourage interaction online. Please ensure all material sent to us is suitable for public viewing and is not of a sensitive nature.

5. Application forms must be short and concise – keep to the requested length.

6. All grants are completely at the discretion of Vegware, and no discussion will be entered into. We may offer you less than the amount requested, in which case you can accept or decline the offer.
