Nominations are now closed

Our Community Fund grant nominations are now closed.

Due to the Cost of Living Crisis, we have amended our Community Fund grants to a maximum of £5,000.

We will prioritise projects that support employability, food poverty, debt management, homelessness and the environment.

Nomination criteria

In order to make a nomination for funding, your charity must meet the following criteria:

  • Groups must be nominated by at least one current customer of the Society
  • Recognised community groups/initiatives within the North East or branch area for out-of-area branches
  • Any funding provided must ‘make a difference’ and be the reason why the initiative would be able to start
  • Project must be at a stage where it can start within 3 months
  • The funding must be used for a specific project – not just a donation
  • The project must align with one of our charitable themes - debt management, the environment, or working to tackle food poverty, homelessness, or employability 

We cannot fund requests to support:

  • Contributions to general appeals or circulars
  • Religious or political activity which is not for wider public benefit
  • Public bodies to carry out their statutory obligations
  • Activities which solely support animal welfare
  • Activities which have already taken place
  • Grant making by other organisations
  • Privately owned and profit-distributing companies or limited partnerships
  • Commercial/profit making ventures

Please provide valid and up-to-date contact details.
