What is the Community Fund?
The Bournemouth Airport Community Fund is a completely separate fund that is managed independently by the Community Fund Management Committee. It is open to community, social, recreational and environmental groups operating within the Borough of Christchurch.. The money in the fund comes from a substantial annual donation from Bournemouth Airport, which was agreed following negotiations with Christchurch Borough Council as a result of the redevelopment of the new terminal building.
The Community Fund objectives are outlined below. In order for a project to receive a grant from the fund it must meet at least one of the following:
- To bring the community closer together through facilities for sport, recreation and other leisure time activities
- Offer environmental improvement and/or heritage conservation
- Improve awareness of environmental issues through environmental education
- Encourage and/or protect wildlife
