Heart of the Community Fund – Virgin Money Foundation

virgin money foundation banner

Here at the Virgin Money Foundation, we’re on a mission to support community regeneration by backing people who can make big changes happen locally.

We love helping local communities thrive so every two months, we’re giving three local charities the chance to win £1,000 – with awards of £500 and £250 for the two runners-up.

The awards will go to the charities with the most votes from Virgin Money customers and Lounge members.

We’d love to support projects:

  • Run by smaller local registered charities. That means annual running costs of less than £500,000
  • Working in the parts of Inner London that need money the most
  • With strong local roots
  • Benefiting the wider community

Funds can be used to buy materials and equipment, make improvements to a community building or sports facility, clean up an area of wasteland or support an event. The money could also pay for staff to run an activity.

If you know of any local charities you think fit the bill and deserve to feature on our voting unit, they should apply to the Virgin Money foundation online.
