Supporting charities to make a difference
The Morrisons Foundation supports charities making a positive difference in local communities. Since launching in 2015 we’ve donated over £18m to help good causes across England, Scotland and Wales.
How we do it
We award grants for charity projects which improve people’s lives and match fund the money that Morrisons colleagues raise for their chosen charities.
How we're funded
We receive all of our income from Wm Morrison Supermarkets PLC, which founded the Foundation in 2015.
How we work
Morrisons colleagues act as ambassadors for the Foundation. They help to raise awareness at a local level, encourage charities to apply for funding and organise cheque presentations.
How we're governed
Our eight trustees set the direction of the Foundation and ensure it fulfills its charitable purposes.

We know that all over the country charities are doing incredible and inspiring work to help others and make local communities better places to be. Our grants have supported good causes across England, Scotland and Wales. Here’s where our support has reached so far.
Our support has helped charities throughout Scotland, providing high value donations and community grants.
From Newcastle to Portsmouth, and Norwich to Bristol, our grants have covered the length and breadth of England.
A range of Welsh charities have received a cash boost, supporting our commitment to make a positive difference in communities across Wales.
Match funding supports the charities that Morrisons colleagues spend their time fundraising for, and provides a cash boost to their efforts. Match funding for up to £1,000 per application is available for Morrisons colleagues twice a year. It can support a range of fundraising activities and events including:
Raised £640 for SCOPE by taking part in a tandem sky dive.
Raised £858 for Macmillan Cancer Support by organising a tombola and quiz night.
Raised £474 for British Heart Foundation by participating in a London to Brighton off-road bike ride.
How long can I expect to wait?
Match funding applications are normally processed within six weeks and grant applications can take up to three months to review.
How will I be notified?
We’ll let you know the outcome of your application by telephone or email, even if it’s not successful.
Can the Foundation support Community Interest Companies and Social Enterprises?
The Foundation’s donations are only available for charities registered with the Charity Commission or Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.
