Are you a not-for-profit organisation?
Your project must not operate to make a profit. All income generated by the project must solely be used for running and maintenance costs.
Is your project open to the general public?
Unless your project is a category DA project, it must be accessible to the general public at least 4 evenings or 2 days a week or 104 days in a year.
Are you applying for correct level of funding?
Yorventure considers grants from £5,000 up to £50,000. The Yorventure grant must fund between 50% and 100% of the entire project cost. Where applicants are applying for 100% funding, they must demonstrate a clear effort at trying to secure match funding from other sources”.
