About the Grant
Each year, Asda Foundation support local grassroots organisations to transform
communities and improve the lives of people living within the Asda community.
We welcome applications from groups asking for funding which:
- Benefits the community
- Is local to an Asda store
- Brings people together
- Ensures everyone has an equal opportunity to be involved
Each store has a Community Champion, their role is to support projects within the
community and support bringing people together. They manage all applications for Asda Foundation grants. The Asda Foundation does not accept applications directly from community groups.
This grant is focused on personal hygiene dignity, supporting residents/patients in facilities, who are struggling and unable to provide their own toiletries either through lack of funds or access to family support. We would expect applications from care homes, hospices, hospitals and homeless shelters.
Healthy Holiday Grant:
This grant is designed to support groups that typically would be holding summer holiday activities to ensure children are provided with a hot meal. If social distancing is relaxed before school holidays, then standard (Transforming Communities Improving Lives (TCIL) criteria would apply (Option 1). If social distancing hasn’t relaxed, we would provide grants for groups to deliver provisions to children at home (Option 2).
To be eligible to apply for a grant, your group must be one of the following;
- a Charity,
- a not for profit company,
- a Community Interest Company (CIC),
- an unincorporated Club or Association
Please see the attached document for further eligibility criteria.
