We're the Gusto Community Fund

A unique community donation project
About

£93,000, donated to the local community!


A unique fund to support our local communities.

The Gusto Community Fund is administered by the Collingham Community Trust and is uniquely distributed through the nominations of recent buyers of a new Gusto Home, and the nominations of the Gusto Group employees who helped to build them.

How are grants made?

How are grants made?

The Gusto Community Fund is reviewed annually and is aimed at supporting good causes or projects local to Gusto Group’s operating businesses. These are currently located at Collingham, Balderton and Worksop, Nottinghamshire. Potential grant recipients are invited to apply, once they have been nominated to do so by the employees of Gusto Group Ltd, Gusto Construction Ltd and Rototek Ltd, or by buyers of a new Gusto Home. The nominations only take a moment to make using the link below, or via the Fund Grant Administrators who are on-hand throughout to provide any help needed; they also approve payment of the grants, and make any associated cheque-presentation arrangements that are agreed with recipients.

What good causes are eligible for grants?

What good causes are eligible for grants?

To be eligible to apply for a grant, the good causes must be local to Collingham, Balderton or Worksop, Notts areas, or local to where the nominating Gusto team-member or home-buyer lives. To help those making the nominations to identify suitable recipients, a listing of local initiatives seeking funding is available on this website (see link below). Grants can only be paid to good causes that are not directly linked to the person nominating them, and that have their own bank account (ie payments cannot be paid into an individual’s account). The GCF’s grant-making year runs from April to the following March; in the event of multiple nominations being made, there is an upper limit of £2,000 in any one year that will be paid to any single recipient or linked recipients.

How are the grants processed?

How are the grants processed?

The grants made are wholly funded by Gusto Group Ltd through a ring-fenced grant donated annually to registered local charity Collingham Community Trust (CCT). On behalf of the Gusto Community Fund, and assisted pro-bono by the Fund’s two grant administrators, the CCT processes nominations made, invites applications from eligible beneficiaries, and makes the grant payments. No administration costs are involved, allowing 100% of the annual grant to be allocated to local community initiatives.

Why are the grants made in this way?

Why are the grants made in this way?

Gusto Group is keen to support local communities in the areas in which it operates. By involving the buyers of new homes in making grant nominations (one per household) to local third-party good causes, and community-based initiatives helps them to make new friends and support their new neighbourhood. The nominations made by Gusto Group team members reflects their role in creating the new homes, and enables them to support good-causes close to where they live or work.
