Millennium Stadium Charitable Trust
The MSCT was established through an agreement between the Millennium Stadium and the Millennium Commission and its income is generated through a levy on every ticket purchased by people attending public events at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
Grants of up to £2,500 are available for not-for-profit organisations in Wales that have a remit to serve their local community or town.
NB SALARIES AND OVERHEADS WILL NOT BE SUPPORTED
Funding is available for projects in the following four areas:
Sport – The Trust is keen to support volunteer-based projects, particularly from ethnic minorities and people with disabilities.
The Arts – The Trust aims to give more people the opportunity to enjoy the diversity of performing and visual arts in Wales. The Trust particularly favours proposals which expand and improve arts provision in parts of the country less well served than others and will give priority to organisations which strive to work together to share experiences, practices and ideas.
The Environment – The Trust encourages applications relating to recycling, developing green spaces, the development and promotion of green practices and the promotion of public transport schemes.
The Community – The Trust will give priority to organisations that are looking to tackle social, personal, economic or cultural barriers within their own communities. In particular, projects that lead to greater independence and give people more control over their lives will be given priority.
