LOCAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR FUNDING/SUPPORT

Nov 2017

LOCAL LOTTERIES

The district councils run a weekly lottery with 60% of ticket sales going directly to support local good causes. See links:


SUPERMARKET DONATIONS

Asda Foundation Green Token Giving
Asda Foundation Green Token Giving provides funding for local charities and good causes
nominated by customers and colleagues.

Co-op Local Community Fund 
1% of what members spend on selected own brand products at a Co-op Store goes to the
Co-op Local Community Fund. Applications to be a local cause open again in Spring 2019.

Nisa
Making a difference locally (MADL) is a charity launched to help independently run local
stores to add value to their communities through donations. Once the stores have a pot of
money they can find out what causes the community cares about and donate to them.

Sainsbury’s
Every year Sainsbury’s work together with customers and colleagues to support a local
cause in the local community. These partnerships last for a whole year and include a range
of support including awareness raising, fundraising in store, volunteering and donations.

Tesco
Each store holds a community budget to help support with requests for local fund-raising
events (see Community Champions below).

Waitrose
Each branch has a Community matters champion who finds out about potential beneficiaries
to benefit from the token scheme based at each store.

Wilko – Helping Hands Programme
Branches in High Wycombe and Aylesbury.
Every WILKO store has a budget to give a little helping hand to local groups and community projects. You could get WILKO gift cards, products or volunteers to help with whatever you’re doing for your community – whether it’s a raffle prize to help with fund raising or tins of paint and extra helpers to do up a community centre. The following link gives an easy step guide to filling in application form.


SUPERMARKET COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS

Asda
The role of a community champion is to work with charities and community groups in their
local area so that ASDA can provide effective support. For example: in-store fundraising,
colleague fundraising, healthy eating sessions in schools, volunteering in the community and
rooms for the community in-store.

Morrisons
Community Champions are based in each store and support small, local charities wherever
they can i.e. bag packs, raffle prizes, store tours and school visits.

Tesco
Community Champions work to ensure that Tesco can bring genuine benefit to the local
community be it a local community event, fundraising activities, bag packing or donations.
