Members rebate generates a community benefit fund

As a not-for-profit organisation, any surplus generated over the financial year is re-distributed into SPA’s Community Benefit Fund. SPA’s Executive Board members are eligible to apply for a portion of the fund each year to use for projects for their local community.

We work in partnership with Lintel Trust who manage the fund and support Executive Board members in their delivery of community benefit projects, including sourcing match funding. Projects and causes must meet specific criteria determined by partners to ensure the Fund is used to support local needs and communities.
