The Kier Foundation is here to help you maximise the support you give to causes you hold dear.
Last year we supported 130 different organisations through our employee match funding and business match funding schemes and are always on hand to support you with your fundraising efforts.
Here’s how we can support you
Employee match funding is designed to support Kier colleagues in their own personal fundraising efforts and help them raise even more for the causes they hold dear.
Anyone who works for Kier can apply to receive a maximum 'top up' of £200 on the money they have raised for a UK-registered charity, twice per financial year (July-June).
Business match funding is designed to help Kier businesses engage directly with the local community where their business operates.
If your Kier business is running a community project where Kier is donating time and money (either from Kier or our supply chain partners), you can apply for up to £5,000 towards the project to make a greater social impact.
For more information, read the attached criteria.
