Capital grants are paid on receipt of invoice and site visit taking place.

All applicants should complete an application form and include copies of:
- Annual independent audited accounts for the last two financial years.

Revenue grants are made to address specific issues of need in local communities, to encourage new groups to be established, and to encourage local levels of civic participation and volunteering.
Capital grants are made towards capital schemes i.e., the acquisition of land, the acquisition / construction / extension / improvement of a building and/or the purchase of equipment to provide new or improved facilities.

'3' Community Grassroots Grant Fund
The aim of the Royal Borough '3' Community Grassroots Fund is to provide grant funding to small voluntary and community groups and organisations in the Windsor and Maidenhead area, enabling them to continue or expand their work, including advocacy, community voice and service provision.
Any organisation operating within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and established for charitable purposes can apply, provided there is a formal structure which will allow for monitoring of activity. The Fund seeks applications primarily from groups working with young people. Examples include homework clubs, skills development and activities relating to the prevention of crime, counselling, mentoring or volunteering, youth clubs, arts, culture or the environment.
