Funding: Persimmon Community Champions

The Persimmon Community Champions programme has already donated more than £1 million to good causes in England, Wales and Scotland. Every month they give away 60 donations of up to £1,000 each to local groups and charities.

The Persimmon Community Champions charity match programme gives donations of up to £1000 to local UK groups and charities, which have already raised vital funds themselves.

Each of their 29 businesses and their PLC head office are giving away up to £2000 each every month – that’s a whopping £60,000 a month available to fund local community initiatives.

It’s really simple to apply for a donation. All you need to do is complete the online form, telling them why your group or charity deserves a donation. Included in your application they’ll need to know how much you’ve already raised and how much you want to receive.
