The Anne Dodgson Memorial Fund is now open for applications

September 1, 2016

Somerset Community Foundation are delighted to announce that the Anne Dodgson Memorial Fund is now open for applications, with a closing date of Friday 30th September.

The fund was set up in 2015 in memory of Anne Dodgson who, before her untimely death, made many significant contributions to the promotion of astronomy in Somerset and was instrumental in the founding of the Crewkerne and District Astronomical Society (CADAS).  

A limited number of small grants (around £250) are available from this fund to help people of all ages across Somerset access science education through astronomy, and applications are now invited from community groups and charities. Schools may also apply, via their Parent Teacher Association (or equivalent organisation), but in general we would expect to see a matched contribution towards these projects. We will only consider applications for projects which benefit people living in the county of Somerset (ie. Mendip, Sedgemoor, West Somerset, Taunton Deane and South Somerset).
