At Stowmarket Town Council we place a high value on improving the town by working with local groups and organisations. In order to support the work of local groups, we have two funding schemes – The Grant Scheme and StowFund.


The Grants Scheme

Our Grants Scheme is now open. Local organisations are able to apply for grants, of up to £500,  for projects and initiatives that will be of benefit to the residents of Stowmarket.

The closing date for completed applications is 3rd November, 2017.



StowFund runs throughout the year to support volunteer led projects and initiatives that benefit the community and/or improve the environment of Stowmarket. Money has recently been awarded to the Salvation Army for youth engagement exercises at the café on the Recreation Ground and to the Stowmarket Boys Brigade Band for new uniforms and wet weather capes.
