A season of sharing

At Wesleyan, we know things are a little harder this year with many charities feeling the pinch of rising costs. That’s why through the Wesleyan Foundation we’re giving an extra financial boost to the organisations that work tirelessly to better our communities.

Last year, our Winter of Giving grant supported 48 charities, donating £2,200 to each.

This year, on top of our regular grants programme, we have an additional £100,000 pot to donate to our members' and colleagues' favourite charities. We just need your help finding the deserving recipients.

Please note that nominations have now closed.
