Other Foundations

In 2016, Lloyds Banking Group donated £18.5m to its independent Foundations, covering England & Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands. The contribution enables the Foundations to make grants to local, regional and national charities – most of which focus on supporting disadvantaged people during key transitions in their lives.

Foundation grants are increasingly used to help charities become more efficient and more effective fundraisers in their own right. In addition, bank colleagues offer Foundations and the charities they support access to essential business skills. In 2016, more than 190 colleagues, many of them in senior management roles, supported charities as mentors through the Foundations' Enhance programme.

If you are based in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland, please contact the appropriate Lloyds Banking Group Foundation, as each has their own Trustee Board, application guidelines and procedures.
