Funding Available to Support Local Good Causes

The Morrison's Foundation awards grants of up to £25,000 to community projects that improve people's lives.

Applicants must demonstrate how the project will deliver public benefit, who in the community will specifically benefit and how it will bring about positive change.

Grants may be applied for by any charity which is registered with the Charity Commission. Applicants must also have raised some funding towards the project elsewhere.

In 2018, a total of £9,717,536 was distributed to 807 organisations which included:

  • A grant of £11,578 to run a series of activities for people at risk of social isolation.
  • A grant of £5,000 to a school to replace their old and dilapidated outdoor trim trail.

N.B. They won't normally fund sports-based charities, unless the objective is to improve the lives of vulnerable or disadvantaged people.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis can be submitted at any time.
