About the Hello Tomorrow Fund

The Avon Hello Tomorrow Fund is an Avon initiative whose objective is to empower women and improve society by providing individuals with cash awards that will allow them to pursue a project in one of two areas: community service or awareness and education.

Between April 2007 and March 2008 the Fund will provide a total of £40,000 to successful individuals who submit a compelling application that both advances the interests of women and ultimately improves society in the county of Northamptonshire. Applications in the categories noted above will be accepted on an ongoing basis beginning March 8th 2007 which is International Women's Day and thereafter on a four-weekly cycle. Award winners' stories will be shared in the UK through www.avon.uk.com, the Chronicle and Echo newspaper group and other promotions related to the Hello Tomorrow Fund.

Award recipients will be selected by a panel of judges through a competitive process, and will be announced monthly on the www.avon.uk.com website and via the Chronicle and Echo. Award decisions will be based on the quality and relevance of the application as outlined in the Hello Tomorrow Fund criteria, and the potential impact of the proposed initiative.
