Grants are available to non-profit making, constituted groups and organisations for local good causes that focus on supporting children and families in the UK.
Current Status: Open for Applications
Maximum value: £ 1,500
Funding in 2021 is aimed at projects that focus on supporting children and families within the UK. This could be for example a local school needing food for a children’s breakfast club, a voluntary organisation working with families to run holiday clubs, a charity supporting young people with specialist advice to manage mental health, a brownie or scout group needing new tents or a youth sports club needing new equipment, a family advice centre wanting to recruit more volunteers, or a local friends of a park group wanting to develop a new toddler area.
Tesco’s funding has supported thousands of local community projects across the UK, helping to fight holiday hunger, tackle mental health, support young people, host community events and much more. Originally launched in 2016 as Bags of Help, the scheme has supported over 36,000 community groups with more than £85 million in grants. The scheme aims to make a positive difference – because where Tesco communities thrive, Tesco business and colleagues thrive too.
Three projects in 575 local communities are voted on by customers in Tesco stores throughout the UK, with projects changing every three months.
Three levels of grants are awarded with projects receiving:
Match funding is not required as the scheme can fund 100% of the total project costs. However, for applicants that have secured additional funding, there is no limit to what this amount can be and any funding awarded by Tesco Community Grants programme can form part of their wider project costs.
Not-for-profit organisations in the UK can apply if they are constituted and have a governing document.
New extra requirements have been introduced for 2021. All applicants must now proivde identification to support their application.
