Tesco’s Community grant scheme looks to fund projects focusing on children, families and food poverty. Once the applications are chosen they will go into the in-store vote (the blue token scheme). The funding available for grants is £500 (3rd), £1,000 (2nd) and £1,500 (1st) depending on your organisation’s place in the store vote.
However if you are aware of a project that does not fit under the aforementioned themes, but believe they would benefit from the grant scheme the group can be nominated. A nominated group will go straight into the in-store vote, so will be guaranteed funding.
Applications can be submitted at any time though there can be a bit of a wait as three groups go into store voting in each area every 3 months (so 12 groups over the course of the year).
