Green Grants

Dear Member of Parliament,
As you’ll undoubtedly be aware, volunteers, schools and non-profit organisations across the country are coming together to create wonderful environmental projects for the benefit of the communities in which they are based.

At The Green Insurance Company we like to encourage such projects and last year launched our Green Grants initiative inviting community groups with green projects to apply for individual grants of up to £2,000 either to get an idea off the ground or expand already successful projects. We were delighted with the success of the scheme and are launching Green Grants 2011 this week, offering £40,000 of grants including a one off special grant of up to £10,000 which will be voted for by the public.

We’d like to ask if you’d consider lending your support to our Green Grants initiative by spreading the message to your constituents about the funding available for environmental projects in your community. To assist we’ve supplied a press release template which you can personalise and send to your local media to encourage your constituents to apply for a grant.

We appreciate you taking the time to consider our request and look forward to, hopefully, receiving information from your constituents and their environmental projects.

If you or your office requires any further information please email greengrants@greeninsurancecompany.co.uk

Best Regards
