Could your organisation benefit from a Santander Grant?

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Tuesday, June 10, 2014 Under: Grants

Whilst I was at the FSI training roadshow recently, showcasing AdvantageNFP Fundraiser, I learnt that the Santander Foundation provide a huge number of grants per year to local charities and not for profit organisations. The Santander Foundation has two grants programmes to help disadvantage people in the UK.

The Community Plus programme provides grants of up to £5,000. The scheme is available to small local UK 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.

The only criteria for the Community Plus grants are they must be a UK registered charity; must be a local charity or local project of a larger charity; the grant must benefit local disadvantaged people.

The Central Fund programme offers grants of up to £10,000. This programme is available to charities and credit unions anywhere in the UK for projects related to education, training or financial capability.

For education and training the activity could be anything where disadvantaged people improve their confidence in a skill or their understanding of a subject. This does not have to be formal training or lead to a qualification, although those activities would be eligible too.

For financial capability activities may help disadvantaged people understand how to manage their money. It could include budgeting skills, accessing affordable credit as well as managing the challenges that arise from being a carer, unemployment, disability or relationship break up.

All funding is for a one off donation. If you are unsuccessful you can re-apply at any time.

If your charity or not for profit organisation fits the criteria, what are you waiting for?
