"We are committed to supporting
charities to help them make a difference
for disadvantaged people in the UK."


The Santander Foundation plays an important role in Santander UK's Sustainability and CSR strategy.

Over the last three years, the foundation has focused on helping disadvantaged people in the UK through projects to improve skills, knowledge and innovation. During this time over £9.4 million has been awarded to more than 2,100 charitable causes.

We’re now taking the opportunity to review the strategy of the Santander Foundation to assess whether it’s possible to have an even greater impact in our communities beyond that already achieved. This means the Discovery Grants scheme closed for applications on 22 February 2019.

Over the next few months we’ll develop our new corporate strategy and programmes to launch later this year.  For more information, please visit the FAQs page.
