Bay Foundation

The Bay Foundation was established by Lancaster District CVS to promote and organise fundraising opportunities and programmes for the benefit of communities in the Lancaster District. We have supported local communities for almost 50 years and have two decades of experience in fundraising and grant administration.

As a Living Wage Employer, we encourage applicants to support the movement and set appropriate pay rates.

Funding Opportunities

We understand how challenging it is for VCFSE groups to source funding and can help by conducting comprehensive funding searches on your behalf using the GRANTfinder service and other resources. You can find out more about available local grants and how to apply here.

We’re here to help if you need support with applying for funding. Contact us by email at [email protected] or telephone 01524 555900.

Grant Administration & Donate to Local Charities

Our team has experience in grant administration and can administer grants on behalf of trusts and organisations, including accepting donations and holding funds on their behalf.

If you would like to know more about how we can help administer grants on behalf of your organisation, please contact Yak Patel, our Chief Officer, by email at [email protected] or telephone 01524 555900.
