The Santander Foundation awards grants of up to £5,000 to help disadvantaged people make the most of their future.

    For example, training to help socially isolated people develop skills to get back into work or volunteering opportunities for disadvantaged young people.>
  • CHANGEMAKER Innovative solutions to social challenges
    What about a new social networking program for visually impaired young people to access the internet?

What we can fund

  • for complete projects, we don’t make contributions or part funding
  • to cover part-time salaries, equipment or materials but they must be specific to your project
