Funders Spotlight - Venator Together Fund

Funders Spotlight - Venator Together Fund


Venator is a global chemical company headquartered in the North East. They create and make pigments and additives that make a difference to daily life and contribute to a more sustainable future. With so many of their employees living and working in the North East, they want to be able to make a real difference to their local communities.


The Together Fund, the first of two to be set up under the Venator Community Fund, will make 40 grants of £250 to VCSE community groups and organisations in the North East for activities that inspire teamwork.


Venator will introduce a second fund, the Bright Ideas Fund, to inspire innovation through ideas in science, engineering, technology and maths in early 2019.


Applicants must submit 250 words on the Venator website about how their group or organisation would use the grant to promote teamwork. All successful applications will then go head-to-head in an online public vote in September 2018.
