Everyone needs a place to feel at home.
About B&Q Foundation
We believe that everyone needs a place to feel at home. That's why we set up the B&Q Foundation - so that charities can easily access the funding they need to create better, safer places in our communities for those that need them the most..
The B&Q Foundation supports registered charities with a combination of grants, volunteering time and home improvement resources. It concentrates its efforts on local charities helping to create better, safer places for people who need them most.
More than, £3million has now been donated to over 600 charity projects, helping to support more than 390,000 people in local communities.
From improving the safety of a home for someone with a disability, to providing residential support for people with no home of their own – the organisations it backs are making a difference to those who don’t have access to what most of us take for granted. And that helps build better communities for us all.
How B&Q supports the Foundation
Along with our customers and colleagues we support the B&Q Foundation through product sales, donations, and fundraising events. Our colleagues have taken on the three peaks challenge and marathons, held bake sales and tombolas all to raise money for the B&Q Foundation.
Fundraising weekends are held throughout the year in our 300 stores and each year certain products are selected to support the Foundation.
This year, we want to raise over £2 million to support even more causes. Because when we roll up our sleeves, together we can do it.
