DISCOVER NATIONWIDE BUILDING SOCIETY’S COMMUNITY GRANT PROGRAMME
Everyone should have a place fit to call home.
Good housing is vital for building society, which is why it’s always been close to Nationwide’s heart. It was central to how and why the building society began over 150 years ago.
And now, they are working together with their members to support charities that tackle local housing issues and homelessness across the UK. In fact, they’ve already made a real difference across the region.
NATIONWIDE BUILDING SOCIETY’S COMMUNITY BOARD
As a building society, Nationwide members have a say in where Nationwide money goes. And their members asked for at least 1% of pre-tax profits to be dedicated to good causes.
So they've done exactly that.
A Community Board was formed for each region, made up of their local members and colleagues. And together, they decide which local housing projects are awarded a Nationwide Community Grant.
From last year’s work, Nationwide’s support has made a real impact across the region. But there’s more to do. So, this year, they are supporting 11 more charities to tackle housing issues and homelessness in your local area.
