Financial services provider Santander UK plc is inviting applications from UK charities to become its charity of the year in 2013.
The company and its staff raised £578,000 for its 2011 partnership with Alzheimer's Society, and this year it has partnered with Marie Curie Cancer Care and it aims to raise £750,000.
The criteria for charity partners are:
* a UK charity with national coverage
* can provide Santander with a dedicated Account Manager
* can provide details of a specific project that the target of £750,000 can fund
* can provide innovative fundraising campaigns and volunteering opportunities for both branch and head office sites, preferably with a regional focus in some or all of the following areas: Belfast, Bradford, Camden, Glasgow, Leicester, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Sheffield and Teesside.
There is no application form, and proposals should be no more than three sides of A4. The deadline for applications is 17.00 on 30 June 2012.
Following a selection process, four charities will be short-listed and voted on by staff in September.
Jonathan Elliott, Santander's senior community manager, said: "It's essential for us that the fundraising we do can translate into tangible support for our causes. We've had some tremendously successful relationships over the past few years and we look forward to seeing a wide range of proposals for 2013."
