Funding Opportunities: Tesco Community Grants & Newby Trust
Tesco Community Grants help to fund thousands of local projects across the country. Since 2016 the scheme has supported over 40,000 community groups with more than £90 million in grants. The scheme aims to make a positive difference – because where our communities thrive, our business and our colleagues thrive too.
Tesco Community Grants are open to charities and community organisations to apply for a grant of up to £1,500. Every three months, three local good causes are selected to be in the blue token customer vote in Tesco stores throughout the UK.
The Newby Trust is a small family trust which makes grants to charities in the broad areas of education and social and medical welfare. The Trust is more likely to fund smaller or medium-sized charities with an annual income of less than £1,000,000.
In general, only charities that are invited to apply will be considered for a grant. Charities that fall within the special category should send an introductory email to the company secretary at email@example.com.
The Trust does not make relief grants directly to individuals. Payments are only made through an applicant organisation. Grants are not normally made where the household income is in excess of £1000 a month.
