Community Funding opportunities from Persimmon

First published: Wednesday 22 Apr 2020

We’ve been asked by Persimmon Homes to share news of two schemes that are available to local groups to apply to for the chance of extra funding. The first is aimed at young people and the second at groups supporting the over 70s. If you know of any groups, or if you belong to a group, who might be interested in applying, please forward this email to them.

Please note, we are not involved in administering the schemes, please apply directly to Persimmon using the links below.

Building Futures

Persimmon’s Charitable Foundation has committed to relaunching its Building Futures scheme for 2020. As part of its sponsorship of Team GB, Persimmon will donate more than £1 million to support children in sport, health and education.

We are calling on local groups within your area which support children to apply. It can all be done online remotely at www.persimmonhomes.com/building-futures.

Community Champions

Persimmon’s Community Champions initiative has run since 2015 and gives away £64,000 every month in single donations up to the value of £1,000. So far over £3.5 million has been donated in the UK.

Persimmon has decided that from April 2020 all funding will go directly to groups supporting the over 70s.

If you know of any, can you let them know that funding is available. Again, they can apply online at www.persimmonhomes.com/community-champions
