Here to help
Chair of St Agatha’s Fund
We continue to make grants of up to £500 (occasionally more) to help kickstart new community projects, or to provide support for existing ones, often in conjunction with other funders.
We aim to help churches with their mission to support their community, including those serving vulnerable populations. We are able to help projects linked to other faith groups, or those with none.
St Agatha’s Community Kickstart Fund is managed by the Diocese of Sheffield and administered by a Board of Trustees drawn from across Christian denominations within the Diocese. Its aim is to help organisations – of any faith or none – to deliver initiatives and services that will help build stronger communities, especially (but not exclusively) amongst those in the poorest and most deprived areas of the Diocese.
