Every three months the Matthew Good Foundation share’s £10,000 between £5,000 shortlisted projects that have a positive impact on communities, people or the environment. Applications are shortlisted and the five projects that make it to the shortlist are voted for by John Good Group employees, with those projects that receive the most votes receiving the bigger share of the £10,000.
Groups can apply all year round with funding awarded in January, April, July & October, with application deadlines being the 15th of the month before.
