To Bring Significant Benefit to Communities - Bags of Help Centenary Grants Relaunching Soon16-May-2019
Tesco will soon be announcing the next round of their Centenary Grants programme aimed at local charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Tesco Bags of Help Centenary Grants are two special voting rounds of the Tesco local community grant scheme, offering a unique opportunity to benefit more people.
Groundwork is working in partnership with Tesco to deliver Bags of Help Centenary Grants.
To be eligible to apply, projects must provide a significant benefit to communities across the voting region.
Grants will be awarded to not for profit organisations; and partnership working is encouraged.
For the recent voting round, health and wellbeing projects that focussed on cancer, heart disease and diabetes was be prioritised.
Once applications are assessed by Groundwork for eligibility Tesco colleagues then shortlist projects, to go forward to the customer vote.
Three community projects in each region will be voted on by customers in Tesco stores throughout the UK, in July/August and November/December this year.
Following the vote, the project that received the most votes in its area will receive a grant of up to £25,000, second place receiving up to £15,000 and third place up to £10,000.
Tesco say they will fund 100% of the project costs, and so match funding is not required; however it is advised that applicants are welcome to acquire additional funding from elsewhere.
