Grant for charities - Welsh Church Fund

The aim of the Church Fund is to promote and support activities by charities which will benefit the people of Gwynedd and, enrich the local communities.  

**Regrettably, for the time being, (from April 2018), we will not be accepting new applications to the Welsh Church Fund. If you represent a local Eisteddfod which is already on our list of those which receive a grant, you will not be affected. You will continue to receive your grant. 
When this situation changes, it will be announced here.
