£25,000 Golden Giveaway

Applications are now closed.

Our £25,000 Golden Giveaway will give 24 not-for-profit Teesside 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 24-strong shortlist.

Supporters of the good causes will then have an opportunity to vote via the Foundation’s official Facebook Page 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 place – £2,500

3rd and 4th place – £1,750

5th through to 8th – £1,500

9th through to 24th – £500

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.
