Meads Fund.

At the Foundation, we believe that long-term change comes from within a community. The Meads Fund helps to build stronger, more resilient communities by addressing disadvantage and deprivation in Eastbourne.

The Meads Fund was set up using a legacy from a successful Eastbourne businesswoman when she passed away in 2012. She was particularly keen to support groups that actively promote the inclusion of all members of the community.

Guidance on applying.

The Meads Fund supports to not-for-profit organisations and charities working in Eastbourne.

The fund gives grants of up to £20,000 per year, for up to three years, to an organisation who most clearly demonstrates their ability to achieve long-term change. There are no restrictions on what a charity or community group may apply for, except that the Meads Fund will not support capital projects.
