Local community projects can apply for grants of between 1,000 and 5,000 from the Gannett Foundation, a US-based foundation and the parent company of The Oxford Times newspaper, which has paid out more than 2.5 million to charities over the past four years. Local charities that have already benefited include volunteer-run Dialability, which provides advice for disabled people, and the Springboard Family Project, which put its 1,200 grant awarded in 2004, towards toys, holiday activities for children and broadband internet access. Any charity or group running non-profit projects with a creative approach to community issues is eligible to apply. For an application form call Caroline Hyland, PA to the editors, on 01865 425407, or e-mail caroline.hyland@nqo.com. Applications close on 19 April.
