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.

Nomination criteria

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

  • Charitable organisation based within the Northeast of England, Cumbria, or North Yorkshire within a 10-mile radius of a Newcastle Building Society branch

We cannot fund requests to support:

  • Contributions to general appeals or circulars

  • Public bodies to carry out their statutory obligations
  • Activities which solely support animal welfare
  • Activities which have already taken place
