Movement for Good awards 2020


Our 2020 Movement for Good awards

 Charitable giving has been at the heart of what we do for over 130 years. Now more than ever we are proud to be one of the largest corporate donors to charity in the UK, contributing to thousands of good causes in this country and abroad. This year through our Movement for Good awards, we’re building on the widespread success of last year’s initiative and giving a further £1million to charities. Our £1m giving programme has two funding phases: 

  • Phase 1 – 500 charities will each receive £1,000. The nomination window has now closed

We’ve already awarded £500,000 to 500 charities and were amazed by the response from them and their supporters. We know what a difference £1,000 will make to a huge number of charities – thank you to everyone who nominated.

  • Phase 2 – 10 charities will each receive a £50,000 grant

We understand the importance of longer-term funding for charities, especially when trying to bring ambitious new ideas to life. Through our £50,000 awards, we’re actively championing innovation, giving charities the backing they need to propel their plans forward and turn creative ideas into practical solutions that benefit society.

How to apply for the £50,000 awards

Our £50,000 awards are open to eligible charities registered in the UK and Republic of Ireland with an income of less than £5million, which support a cause that we know our communities care about: the advancement of education and skills; citizenship or community development; arts, culture or heritage.

It’s never too soon to start preparing your application. To ensure you’re in with a good chance of being shortlisted, be sure to read our application guide, containing useful information about the assessment criteria and how each application will be scored. 

The £50,000 awards open on Monday 15 June 2020 and close on Friday 24 July 2020 – giving you plenty of time to create a great project submission.
