What is the Foundation?
The OneFamily Foundation is the perfect embodiment of what it means to be a mutual. The Foundation was set up to be aligned to OneFamily’s view of modern mutuality and benefits our customers, their families and the communities in which they live and work.
As OneFamily is owned by its customers we do not need to pursue a policy of profit maximisation to reward third-party shareholders. Instead, we pursue a strategy of profit-optimisation and a percentage of this profit funds the OneFamily Foundation.
Whilst all payments are discretionary, OneFamily aspires to make £5m available through the Foundation over five years. In 2015 alone, over half a million pounds was awarded through Personal Grants and Community Awards.
Is the OneFamily Foundation a charity?
No. The Foundation is a benefit of being a OneFamily customer. All customers are welcome to apply for a Personal Grant and/or nominate a project for a Community Award.
How often does the OneFamily Foundation award money to customers?
Personal Grants of up to £500 are awarded every month.
Community Awards take place twice a year and award grants of up to £25,000 and £5,000 to OneFamily customers' Community projects.
What if I don’t have access to the internet?
OneFamily customers can request a paper copy of either a Personal Grant or Community Award application form by contacting the OneFamily customer services team. Call 0800 373 010. Please note all votes for Community Award nominations must be made online via the Foundation website.
I want to apply for a Personal Grant and/or a Community Award but I’ve been asked for a policy number. What is this?
To apply for funding via the OneFamily Foundation you must be a OneFamily customer.
