The Santander Foundation

In 2021, we launched the Santander Foundation Digital & Financial Empowerment Fund. The programme supports UK charities to give people:
  • Digital confidence and knowledge

  • Skills to enable them to make better, more informed decisions about money

  • Access to financial services

The Santander Foundation Grants Programme

We’re proud to support 21 charities in the UK. We work with them to empower people both digitally and financially.

“When people don't have access to regular financial services and tools, it has big effects on their lives. They end up paying more for things and have fewer choices. It can also impact their education, job opportunities, health, housing, and how they feel overall. Our program aims to help charities that work with the people who suffer the most from these financial and digital problems. We want to make things better for them.”
