Grant size: £1,000 to £20,000
Jimbo’s Fund was set up by generous local businessman, Jimi Heselden, to support people in hardship. Jimi tragically passed away in an accident in 2010, but the fund continues to support local projects across Leeds, continuing Jimi’s legacy of generosity.
This round of Jimbo’s Fund will make grants of £1,000 to £20,000 to support organisations working for the benefit of disadvantaged people in Leeds. Applicants need to be able to demonstrate that their beneficiaries are facing some sort of hardship; that their work is meeting an identified need in the local community; and that they can deliver tangible, positive results.
Please note that Jimbo’s Fund is heavily over-subscribed for each round. Before you apply, please ensure you read these notes carefully to enable you to assess whether your project is likely to be eligible for consideration. We have limited funding available and we are not able to fund every eligible application we receive, no matter how deserving the project is.
