Co-operative Bank Customer Donation Fund

Organisations with a Community Directplus account at the Co-operative Bank, such as registered charities, co-operatives, and credit unions, can apply for grants of up to £1,000 from the Customer Donation Fund.

Since 2003, the Co-operative Bank Donation Fund has donated over £1,000,000 to more than 1,100 local causes.

The funds can support special projects and fundraising activities and all Community Directplus account holders are eligible to apply.

Previous projects supported include Digital Life Skills CIC which works to give children and young people a better digital future by empowering them to navigate the growing online world: and funding for a non-profit organisation to purchase new tools, boots, hard hats, and high-visibility jackets for their workers.

Applications can be submitted in March and September each year and will be assessed in April and October.
