The Santander Foundation now has two grants programmes to help disadvantaged people in the UK. Designed to be quick and easy to use, nominations can be made by charities as well as Santander customers and staff. Interested parties can visit any Santander branch and complete a Community Plus Nomination. The completed form should be left 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 within two 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.
- 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
