Santander Foundation – Discovery Grant
The Santander Foundation awards grants of up to £5,000 to help disadvantaged people make the most of their future. Discovery Grants support projects that improve people’s knowledge, skills or which provide innovative solutions to overcome social challenges. They can only support projects which fulfil these goals and three priority areas – Explorer, Transformer and Changemaker.
- EXPLORER – improving people’s knowledge: such as Money Management workshops helping disadvantaged people learn how to budget.
- TRANSFORMER – improving skills and experience: for example, training to help socially isolated people develop skills to get back into work or volunteering opportunities for disadvantaged young people.
- CHANGEMAKER – innovative solutions to social challenges: what about a new social networking program for visually impaired young people to access the internet?
