Funding Friday

The Asda Foundation supports charities and not-for-profit organisations which are carrying out projects to benefit the local community and that have the support of their local Asda store.

There are Asda stores in Newton Abbot, Torquay, Paignton, Plymouth, Barnstaple and Bideford, as well as Wellington in Somerset (near the Devon border). You need to contact your Local Community Champion in the first instance if you are looking for support from the Asda Foundation.

Funding can be provided through the following schemes:

  • Empowering Local Communities – to support a broad range of activities which contribute towards transforming the community and improving the lives of people in that community. Groups supporting refugees arriving to the UK are also welcome to apply under this grant.
  • U18 Better Start Grant – giving children the best start in life, tackling poverty, inclusion and wellbeing.
  • Emergency Funding – assistance during times of emergency
  • Match funding – extra funding for community projects supported by staff at local Asda stores
  • Green Token Giving – for small, local, grassroots organisations making a positive impact in their local community. You can nominate and vote online for local good causes.
