Money for community buildings

Screwfix Foundation

The Screwfix Foundation, established earlier this year, will raise money through staff fundraising events as well as from collection boxes placed in its 280 stores. Screwfix is continuing its partnership with Pennies, the electronic charity box which enables customers to round up their payments to the nearest pound with all money donated now going direct to The Screwfix Foundation.

The money will be given both to its charity partners and to smaller local charities who can apply for funding through the Screwfix Foundation website. This year’s charity partners are Barnado’s children’s charity and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Any charity that is registered in the UK and has a project that involves fixing, maintaining or repairing buildings or facilities for people in need may apply for funding. There is, at the moment, no set limit. Grants are determined on a case by case basis, and funding is at the discretion of the Trustees. The grants can be used for a range of projects whether it’s repairing a run-down building or decorating the home of a family living with illness and disability.

Applications can be submitted at any time and an application form can be found on The Screwfix Foundation
