Community Dividend Card
Similar to the Dividend Card for individuals, groups have the opportunity to have a Community Dividend Card where you can collect points every time you shop with us.
The difference is that groups are able to apply for several cards to give out to their members or friends that all collect towards the same cause.
At the end of the year, for every £1 the group has collected we will match it and send the group a cheque.

The Foundation provides grants to qualifying sports clubs to help fund legacy projects that will increase participation in sport both now and in the future.
Sports Grants Scheme
The Sports Grants Scheme has been established to create a lasting legacy for future generations through the development of club sport. Grants of between £500 and £2,000 are available to sports clubs to support worthwhile projects
The Foundation aims to support projects that demonstrate development and sustainability of sports clubs. For example - projects that need equipment that is specifically focused on increasing participation, CRBs for volunteers, coaching qualifications and refereeing/umpiring courses
The project supports the development of grassroots sport for young people aged between 5-18.
The club has achieved Clubmark status.
The club has at least one partnership agreement with a local state school.
The club has raised at least 50% of the funds required for the overall project and can provide evidence of this if required.
Available to any sports club that is registered with its sports' National Governing body or local authority.
You might be looking for funding to help with coaching of young kids or you may be after a grant to help buy a new boat or help renovate your current facilities.
In the past we have given money to sports clubs to fund such things as a new female basketball team, or a sailing club wanting to kit out its new Yeoman 20 keelboat.
We look for sports clubs that play an active role in the community.
So if you are a sports club that helps its local community then you are very much the type of club that we are looking to help. We welcome your application for a Cash 4 Clubs sports grant, so start thinking about applying today.
Awards of £250, £500 and £1000 available
