From March 2016, the Santander Foundation will be known as the Discovery Foundation. The change in name has been chosen to reflect the important role it will play in Santander UK's new flagship community programme The Discovery Project, which aims to help disadvantaged people gain the confidence needed to make the most of their future.
The application process has been simplified, and Community Interest Companies and Credit Unions are now also able to apply alongside registered UK charities. Grants of up to £5,000 are available.
A simple nomination form can be picked up from any local Santander branch, however applicants that are not near a branch can download a form online. Nominations can be made by organisations and members of the public as well as Santander customers and staff.
Applications will be accepted at any time and successful applicants will be notified by email within a month of submitting their application.
