Santander Community Grants

Project Description

Funding available from Santander

The Santander Community Plus grant scheme is designed to be quick and easy to use, nominations can be made by charities as well as Santander customers and staff. Just visit any Santander branch and complete a Community Plus Nomination. The completed form should be dropped into your local branch. There are no closing dates and entries will be considered by a panel of staff drawn from across the region once every two months. Successful charities will be notified within 2 months of submitting their nomination. If you have not heard from us within 2 months then you have been unsuccessful, but you are free to apply again at any time.

The grant needs to fund something specific like equipment or to pay for the costs of a part time sessional worker. It must also directly help disadvantaged people in your local area. The only criteria for the Community Plus grants are:

· 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

However, the programme we cannot fund:

· Individuals

· Unregistered charities, not for profit groups, Community Amateur Sports Clubs, exempt or excepted charities

· Community Interest Companies or Social Enterprises

· Charities which restrict their beneficiaries to a single religious or single ethnic group

· One off events and conferences, sponsorship or fundraising activities

· Party political activity
