Screwfix Foundation Re-opens for Applications

| Return|

The Screwfix Foundation, a registered charity, was created by trade retailers Screwfix in 2013.

After being closed for nearly three months, the Foundation is now open for applications from registered charities and not-for-profit organisations across the UK.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Be helping those in need by reason of financial hardship, sickness, distress or other disadvantages in the UK.

  • Be looking for funding to support projects that relate to the repair, maintenance, improvement or construction of homes, community buildings and other buildings.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available for projects that relate to the repair, maintenance, improvement or construction of homes, community buildings and other buildings in deprived areas or for those in need.

This can include repairing run-down buildings and decorating the homes of people living with illness and disability. Projects should be environmentally friendly.

Applications can be made at any time and are reviewed on a quarterly basis. The next review will be in August 2020.

How To Apply

Applications can be made at any time and are reviewed on a quarterly basis. The review dates are in February, May, August, and November.

An application form can be found on The Screwfix Foundation website.

All successful applications will be contacted by post, email or phone to arrange the next step. Unsuccessful applicants will be contacted within one month of the review meeting. If on the first instance an application is unsuccessful, the funder welcome any future applications charities may wish to make.
