Morrisons Supermarket seeks new charity partner for the period 30 January 2022 to 30 January 2025 (application deadline 20 June 2021)

Morrisons supermarket’s charity partnership with CLIC Sargent, now Young Lives vs Cancer, is coming to end in January 2022. The supermarket is now in the 5th and final year of its partnership with CLIC Sargent, and has raised £15m since February 2017.

Applications are now open for a future partnership to begin next year. 

Its next partnership will last for 3 years, from 30 January 2022 to 30 January 2025. 

In September 2021 a final shortlist of five charities will be invited to present to a panel of Morrisons colleagues from across the business and in November charities will be notified of the outcome.

To be considered charities must be registered as a charity and should be able to demonstrate they deliver services or projects on a national scale, but with strong relevance to local communities. 

The cause and brand must resonate with colleagues and customers in all Morrisons locations and they should have experience of delivering dynamic fundraising and communications campaigns, tailored to suit the needs of individual corporate partners.

Morrisons has said that, due to the impact on charities of COVID-19,  it will not require its next charity partner to use all the money raised by the supermarket for a brand new project, and instead intends for 50% to go towards an existing service. 

Previously 100% of its fundraising has been restricted to new projects, but for its next partner 50% will be restricted for a new project and 50% will be restricted to existing core services. 

The application window is open until midnight on Sunday 20 June 2021. 

A partnership pack is available on the Morrisons website.
