Arrowhead Charitable Trust
The Arrowhead Charitable Trust will consider supporting initiatives that improve access to a diverse range of facilities including educational, health, recreational, retail services and transport. It will also support initiatives that improve the quality of public spaces in inner city, urban and per-urban residential environments, townships and high-density living areas.
The Arrowhead Charitable Trust has as its focus areas:
- Initiatives in inner city urban, peri-urban, township and high-density neighbourhoods that enable improvements in health, safety and social cohesion
- Initiatives in inner city urban, peri-urban, township and high-density neighbourhoods that improve access for residents to a diverse range of facilities including education, health, recreational and retail services, and
- Initiatives that improve the quality of public spaces in inner city urban, peri-urban, township and high-density residential environments, with particular emphasis on safety and cleanliness.
Applications are currently open, with a closing date of 14 October 2016 and the relevant application form is available for download below.
- Proposals must be restricted to inner city urban, peri-urban, township and high-density neighbourhoods

- Although requests of any level will be considered, those requesting less than R500 000 are more likely to be successful

Each proposal must include an explanation of:
- how the proposed activity will clearly contribute to an improved residential environment in terms of health, safety and/or social cohesion
- how the proposed activity will improve access for residents of inner-city urban, peri-urban, township and high-density neighborhoods to improved facilities such as education, health, recreational and retail services
- how the intervention will measure success and impact (provide specific indicators to track progress towards the goal)
