The Miller Homes Community Fund is an exciting initiative that gives you the chance to apply for a donation towards improving your community.
Donations from the fund can be used in a variety of ways to meet the needs and aspirations of people in the area where you live.
Groups can apply for a donation ranging between a minimum of £250 up to a maximum of £2,000 to help enhance the lives of individuals and the areas in which they live.
Our fund will focus on causes that:
- are linked to education
- promote wellbeing
- promote the environment
- encourage participation in sport
We have a team of employee volunteers known as Community Ambassadors who are local to your area, they will review applications and make awards twice a year.
However, please note that we are unable to approve all applications. Before completing your application ensure you have read the terms and conditions, which can be found [here]
The next funding round for applications opens on Wednesday 13th September and closes on Wednesday 25th October 2023. Successful applicants will be notified in November.
