What we fund
The £3m Sporting Capital Fund provides loan funding of between £50,000 and £150,000 to eligible organisations.
Our simple, repayable, unsecured loans will be tailored to meet the needs of each organisation and will be repayable over 3 to 5 years. If needed, a repayment holiday of up to 24 months may be available, giving projects time to generate sustainable revenue before starting to repay the loan.
We can invest in organisations that are looking to develop new projects, operations and revenue streams. Whilst every organisations’ needs will differ, we expect the funding to be used for projects and activities such as:
- Equipment to support revenue streams
- Recruitment, training and deployment of staff and volunteers
- Equipment to support business functions, including finance, project management and governance
- Other operating costs
We can invest in a wide range of organisations from community sports clubs to social enterprises, charities and profit-with-purpose businesses tht deliver sport and physical activity. Find out more on our eligibility criteria here.
Case studies of investments we have made and examples of types of projects we fund can be found here.
Grant funding, through the Access Reach Fund, may be available for organisations that need support to get ready to take on repayable investment. Find out more here.
