The ASDA Foundation's grants programmes aim to support grassroots charitable organisations working at the heart of its stores' communities. Registered charities, community groups, voluntary organisations and other not-for-profit organisations in the UK can apply for support with initiatives that will make a real long-term difference, benefiting the wider community.
In response to coronavirus/COVID-19, the Foundation has developed two new grant streams:
- Hygiene Grant - 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. (Covered in a separate entry.)
- Healthy Holiday Grant - designed to support charitable groups that typically would be holding summer holiday activities to ensure children are provided with a hot meal. Grant criteria will vary according to the current government social distancing/lockdown guidelines. (Asda Foundation will follow each government’s individual decision across England, Wales, Scotland and NI.)
The Foundation does not accept applications directly. Applications are made through the applicant's local Asda store's Community Champion, whose role is to support projects within the community.
