Empowering Local Communities is an Asda Foundation grant for local groups aimed at supporting a broad range of activities which contribute towards transforming communities and improving lives, as well as funding to strengthen their volunteering.
There are four options to choose from under this grant. You must be clear from the outset which one you are applying for. It’s also possible to apply for a combination. The options are:
Groups must have an income under £1 million per year in order to apply for the grassroots grants. Asda Foundation aims to support and prioritise local grassroots groups with low income where funding will make a bigger difference.
Round 1 applications may be submitted to your local Community Champion between 15th January – 1st March 2024. The round could close early if the budget cap is reached.
Applications should be submitted to Asda Foundation at least six weeks before your activity to give enough processing time.
