There are many different ways clubs can apply for financial help to create welcoming environments, provide enhanced facilities and playing opportunities, and help clubs address the impact of climate change.

At the Warwickshire Cricket Foundation, we want to help clubs ensure that their facilities are the best they can be and that players benefit from them.

County Grants

The County Grant Fund has been operating since late 2021, providing grants of up to £10,000 to clubs to improve their facilities. To be eligible, clubs must be affiliated to WCF.

Warwickshire Cricket Foundation controls the County Grant Fund and the budget allocated to clubs in Warwickshire.

Clubs are actively encouraged to deliver ECB programmes to benefit from the funding (All Stars, Dynamos, Women’s and Girls’ Cricket and/or Disability Cricket).

Grants are constantly changing, and funds open and close, therefore it is hard to keep track of all existing and available grants.

Below are some current funding opportunities that clubs may want to explore accessing. Many of these grants are only available in specific areas, so it is always a good idea to check eligibility requirements.
