    Empowering Local Communities is an Asda Foundation grant for local groups aimed at supporting a broad range of activities which contribute towards transforming communities and improving lives, as well as funding to strengthen their volunteering.

    There are four options to choose from under this grant. You must be clear from the outset which one you are applying for. It’s also possible to apply for a combination. The options are:

    • Providing Essentials - Providing the essentials to address an immediate need and/or situation
    • Transform/Improve - Funding to transform and/or improve a space/activity
    • Connect Together - Funding to bring people together, encouraging community connections
    • Volunteering - Funding to support volunteer costs enabling them to continue supporting their groups and communities

    Fund award sizes

    Minimum - £400

    Maximum - £1,600

    Who Can Apply

    Groups must have an income under £1 million per year in order to apply for the grassroots grants. Asda Foundation aims to support and prioritise local grassroots groups with low income where funding will make a bigger difference.

    When to Apply

    Round 1 applications may be submitted to your local Community Champion 15 January – 1 March 2024. The round could close early if the budget cap is reached.

    Applications should be submitted to Asda Foundation at least six weeks before your activity to give enough processing time.

    How to apply

    Submit your application to your local store's Community Champion.

    The closing date for applications is Friday 01 March 2024.
