All Davies employees are eligible to submit an application for grant funding from The Davies Foundation, to support a cause close to their hearts.
We are not accepting funding applications right now, but will advertise internally as soon as we are inviting funding applications again. The funding application form will then be available here.
Frequently asked questions
When will I be able to submit an application for funding?
Once our group fundraising efforts combined with the business’ match-funding have raised a substantial pot of funds, our charity will periodically invite grant applications. This will be advertised internally and applications for grants can be submitted by Davies employees only. Successful applications should provide a clear description of the cause and the impact that receiving funding would have for the nominated organisation.
Who are on the grants committee and how will they consider my funding application?
Our Grants Committee is made up of our people from different departments and different locations across the business. Each Grants Committee Meeting takes place via conference call where our Grants Committee members review, discuss and decide which community grant applications best meet the charity’s purpose. They also ensure the funds are distributed fairly across the locations we operate in.
How much funding will the Grants Committee have available to allocate?
The Grants Committee will have a maximum allocation of funds, which will be determined by the fundraising efforts of our colleagues at Davies and the match-funding received from the business. The charity trustees will have final approval of the shortlist decided by the committee.
How will the funds be donated if my application is successful?
The Davies Foundation donates grants directly to the nominated good causes and not-for-profits.
