ASDA Foundation - Local Impact Funding available

We aim to transform communities, improving lives now and in the future. As a charitable corporate foundation, we give independent grants and support locally relevant projects throughout the UK. Whether it’s helping, charities, local good causes or community activity, all make a real difference to your local community.  Below are the specific guidelines for each of the areas we support through the Local Impact Grant programme, you must fit the criteria to be able to apply, all of which must be not for profit organisations.

 

Examples of the Local Impact Guidelines/Criteria:

 

1.       Community

This is about supporting your local community, bringing people together, supporting events which will benefit the wider community or supporting local groups with events/initiatives which will have an impact locally.

2.       Elderly

The Foundation not only wants to focus on the elderly at Christmas as loneliness and isolation is something that affects people throughout the year.

3.       Sporting Activities

Sport and physical activity is not only extremely beneficial for young people’s health but their personal growth, learning of teamwork and other valuable skills. Therefore investing in grass roots sport for young people plays a valuable role and strengthens community cohesion.

4.       Christmas

Christmas is a special time of the year however; it can in some cases be an exceptionally lonely time. The Asda Foundation would like to bring people together who might otherwise not be able to do so, combating loneliness, dealing with disability or other similar needs.  The Christmas Grants are to support your community, by bringing those in need together, organising a lunch, party, events, activities which will really make a difference.
