Our approach to community investment
Barclays community investment programme has been developed to reflect our knowledge and expertise as a financial services organisation. We focus on areas such as financial inclusion, financial awareness education and supporting disadvantaged young people into employment.
We have chosen to proactively partner a small number of organisations, enabling us to have the greatest impact on the communities in which we operate.
For this reason we are unable to provide funding to many of the individual requests we receive.

Our donations policy
Unfortunately we do not fund the following:
- Political parties or political bodies
- The promotion of religious beliefs (we do consider projects led by religious organisations providing the whole community benefits)
- The sponsorship of individuals
- Rotary, Lions Clubs and other third-party giving organisations
- Hospital costs
- Medical charities including medical treatment and research
- Capital appeals (for example, for buildings)
- Educational institutions (unless the donation provides direct support to a disadvantaged group)
- The arts (unless the donation provides direct support to a disadvantaged group)
- Microfinance loan fund capital (donations can be used to support the establishment and operation of community-motivated microfinance programmes, but cannot be used as capital for on-lending direct to clients).
