Community Plus grants for local projects benefitting disadvantaged people


Santander Foundation Community Plus grants of up to £5,000 are available for local registered charities or local projects of national charities with funding available to cover salaries, equipment or materials. Grants must directly help disadvantaged people in your local area. Santander wants to fund an entire element rather than make a contribution to a larger budget.

Nominations can be made by charities as well as Santander customers and staff. Nomination forms can be downloaded from the Foundation’s website or be picked up at any Santander branch. All completed Community Plus nomination forms have to be dropped into your local branch ( please do not send them to the Santander Foundation).

This is very much intended to be a local grants programme and the branch staff are the first stage in the assessment process.

There are no closing dates and entries will be considered by a panel of staff drawn from across the region every month. Successful charities will be notified by email within a month of submitting their nomination.
