Arnold Clark Community Fund Opens for 2024

Arnold Clark, the UK’s largest independently owned, family-run car retailer, has been offering grants to communities in the areas in which it operates since 2021.

This year, registered charities and other not-for-profit groups and organisations from across England, Scotland and Wales can apply for the following support:

  • Cost of Living Support – funding to any registered UK charity or community group whose work directly supports those most affected by the cost-of-living crisis, such as foodbanks, accommodation, poverty relief and where people/communities in the UK are the primary and immediate focus of investment.
  • Our Communities Support – funding to projects embedded in the communities in which Arnold Clark operates and is available to organisations who provide services widely accessible to those within Arnold Clark local communities, addressing the needs of those living within them.
  • Gear Up for Sport – 150 sports kits given away each month to support youth sports teams across the UK. Any youth team with up to 30 members aged 4 to 15 years can apply.

Projects applying for ‘Our Communities Support’ must address one of the following categories:

  • Animal welfare (benefiting humans)
  • Arts and culture
  • Community development
  • Disability
  • Education
  • Recreation
  • Relief support
  • Mental health support

Funding is at the discretion of Arnold Clark Community Fund with a possible maximum grant of £2,500.

Applications are reviewed when they are received. Arnold Clark will contact successful applicants on a weekly basis.

Applications are expected to be accepted until the end of December 2024.
