Santander Foundation Launches Community Plus Fund

October 23, 2012

We are delighted to announce the launch of a new grants fund worth £1.23 million. 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 simple nomination form.The completed form should be dropped into the box provided in your local branch. There are no closing dates and entries will be regularly considered by a panel of staff drawn from across the region. Successful charities will be notified within 2 months of submitting their nomination.  If you do not hear from us within 2 months you should assume that you haven’t been successful and you are free to submit another nomination.

The grant needs to fund something specific. Just two examples would be a piece of 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

Please note, we cannot fund:


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

via Santander – Foundation.
