£20,000 Sporting Golden Giveaway

Our new £20,000 Sports Golden Giveaway will give 15 not-for-profit Teesside sporting organisations a chance to share the cash.

They will each receive at least £500 – but they could win up to £5,000 if they receive more votes than their fellow charities in a public poll.

A selection panel of our patrons will face the tough task of choosing the 15-strong shortlist.

Supporters of the good causes will then have an opportunity to vote via the Foundation’s official website for the organisation they believe most deserves the money.

Here’s how the money will be split depending on where each group finishes in the voting:

1st place – £5,000

2nd – £2,500

3rd – £2,000

4th-5th – £1,500

6th-8th – £1,000

9th-12th – £750

13th-15th – £500

Note: Teesside non-sporting organisations are not eligible for this fund.

Applications for the £20,000 Golden Giveaway are now closed.

FAST Fund

The FAST Fund exists to provide financial support to Teesside’s talented sportspeople who have the ability to reach the very top in their chosen sport – but need additional resources.

Talented local sportsmen and women can apply for funds to enhance their sporting opportunities and develop their talent.

Whether it’s for an overseas competition or coaching opportunity, for vital equipment or some other crucial element to your development, you can apply for a grant from the FAST Fund.

The FAST Fund committee meets twice a year to review applications.
