Help causes at the heart of your community

Here at the Virgin Money Foundation, we’re on a mission to support community regeneration by backing the people who can make big changes happen locally.

We love helping local communities thrive, so every two months we’re working with the Virgin Money Lounges in Glasgow and Sheffield to give three local charities the chance to receive £1,000 – with awards of £500 and £250 for two runners-up.

The awards will go to the charities with the most votes from Virgin Money customers and Virgin Money Lounge members. There is a voting unit in each of the Lounges and visitors can pick up a small red heart when they visit, to put into the tube named with the charity they’d most like to support.

Voting is coming to Norwich, Edinburgh and Manchester very soon – we’re open for applications now!

We’re on the move! So as well as supporting charities in Glasgow and Sheffield, we’re now heading for Norwich, Edinburgh and Manchester!

We love helping local communities thrive – and we need a hand deciding which local charities to help next.

If you know of any local charities you think fit the bill and deserve to feature on the voting unit, we want to hear from them!

By the beginning of November 2018 the first three charities will have been short-listed and there will be a voting unit in the three lounges.

Visitors to the lounge will be given a small red heart when they visit, to put into the tube named with the charity they’d most like to support.
