KickStart Funding for Clubs

January 18, 2013

Cumberland FA are encouraging local clubs to apply for the McDonald's KickStart Grant.

Clubs can apply for anything, which will help to support, grow or develop players and the community.

Clubs can apply for one-off grants of between £500 to £2500 including VAT for a single project.

Clubs must be affiliated and have at least one team at or below junior (U18) level.

Only one application can be made per club per project application period.

Examples of things McDonald’s will support include, but are not limited to:
- Club facilities, grounds-keeping tools, training courses, pitch hire, mini-vans and washing machines; whatever your club and team could significantly benefit from.

Examples of things McDonald’s will not support include:
- Advertising and promotions, fundraisers, kit/team wear, club trips/tours, holiday training camps and club personnel wages/expenses e.g. fuel.

For the avoidance of doubt, an application must be submitted and approved prior to the project commencing for it to be considered eligible for a grant. No grant will be awarded for work that has already been completed prior to an application being submitted and approved.
