Scotmid Community Connect funding available

The Scotmid Community Connect fund is open to applications for 2023, with up to £15,000 available for local good causes.

Groups from the three Scotmid Member Regions (North, East and West) will receive support from the Community Connect fund following a vote by members.

Scotmid members collect one Community Connect vote every time they shop in store. They then use their votes to determine the size of the award that each Good Cause Group receives.

To help members make their decision the three Good Cause Groups attend Scotmid’s Member Meeting (either AGM in April or OGM in September) and present their idea to members. Members are also able to cast their votes in store for their favourite group. The group with the most votes receives £15,000 and the two runner-ups are awarded £5,000.

Any group with a project or initiative that benefits communities close to a Scotmid store are welcome to apply for Community Connect funding.

The deadline for applications is 2 March 2023, and you can find out more about how to apply on the Scotmid website.
