Poundland Announces New Foundation is Open for Applications

03 June 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Poundland, the discount store chain, has set up a new charitable foundation which will make £ 825,000 available in cash grants over the next year. Money for the foundation will come from in-store fundraising, carrier bag donations and the partnership with Pennies, the charity that collects micro-donations through chip and pin machines.

The funding is aimed at local community projects.

The first round, Kits-for-Kids, is offering local not-for-profit sports clubs and organisations grants of up to £750 to buy kit and equipment for their team.

Although no deadline has been specified, there are only 250 grants. Groups should therefore apply as soon as possible.
