Barclays' opens 100x100 UK COVID-19 Community Relief Fund offering 50 grants of £100000



As part of the Barclays’ COVID-19 Community Aid Package, Barclays launched the 100x100 UK COVID-19 Community Relief Fund – or 100x100 Programme – to get support right into the heart of local communities throughout the UK to reach those that needed it the most.


Barclays invited UK charities to apply for 1 of 100 donations of £100,000 each, to help them deliver on-the-ground support. Inspired by the scale of the response, Barclays have now extended the programme to help even more charities having reached over 180 charities and organisations.


As the impact of the pandemic continues to be felt all over the world, Barclays have announced a further 50 donations of £100,000 each to UK charities working to support vulnerable people and communities impacted by COVID-19.


UK charities, with an annual income of at least £1m, are invited to apply to receive a donation of £100,000 to meet the needs of UK communities as they emerge from the Covid 19 pandemic, including:


help for people experiencing physical and mental health issues;

financial assistance for people facing financial hardship;

support for ethnically diverse communities disproportionately impacted by the crisis; and

enhancing digital accessibility.


Applications are now open and will close at 6pm (UK time) on Friday 6 August, 2021. You can apply by clicking here.
