Persimmon: funding options

Persimmon is funding good causes across the UK. Each of its 31 businesses and our PLC head office are giving away up to £2,000 every month – that means £64,000 a month is available to fund local community initiatives.

The company supported thousands of community groups and charities over the years, but from 1st April for the foreseeable future, it will focus on organisations that support the over-70s.

To apply for a donation, complete the online form explaining why your group or charity, which works with or supports the over-70s, deserves a donation.

Community Champions

Persimmon’s Community Champions initiative has run since 2015 and gives away £64,000 every month in single donations up to the value of £1,000. So far over £3.5 million has been donated in the UK.

Persimmon has decided that from April 2020 all funding will go directly to groups supporting the over 70s.

Building Futures

Persimmon’s Charitable Foundation is relaunching its Building Futures scheme for 2020. As part of its sponsorship of Team GB, Persimmon will donate more than £1 million to support children in sport, health and education.

Local groups that support children are eligible to apply.
