Grants Scheme Announcement
It is with great disappointment that The Swimathon Foundation announces the postponement of their Community Grants Scheme for 2020. Unfortunately, the current status of swimming provision in the UK, as a result of coronavirus, means it is very difficult to allocate funding for this calendar year.
However, The Swimathon Foundation’s determination to support worthy aquatics causes across the country remains a key pillar of their work and the scheme will return in 2021. The Swimathon Foundation will be in touch through relevant organisations in due course, once the 2021 Community Grants Scheme is ready for applications.
The Swimathon Foundation are aware that the aquatics community are facing a hugely difficult period of time. The Swimathon Foundation launched a COVID-19 Relief Fund in May 2020 for small aquatic organisations to apply for. All applicants will hear by Friday 5 June as to whether their applications were granted funding.
Grants Scheme Information
The Swimathon Foundation Community Grants Scheme offers funding to groups and individuals who provide and promote swimming in their local community. The Foundation is passionate about encouraging people to get involved with swimming, which it hopes to encourage even further with its Community Grants.
Grants vary from £500 to £2,500 and will only be awarded to organisations supported by pools that are participating in Swimathon. The grants are administered by Swim England and are awarded on an annual basis.
