Donation Requests

Grants and Donations Policy

Section 137 of the Local Government Act 1972 enables local councils to spend a limited amount of money for purposed for which they have no other specific statutory expenditure.

As Sawston Parish Council receives an increasing number of such requests it is necessary to implement policy guidelines for the allocation of grants and donations, although not all donated money is given under S137.

The attached form must be completed if you are making this request.
