Persimmon Building Futures – prizes of up to £100,000 available to youth focused organisations


Persimmon Homes is delighted to have joined forces with Team GB – the British Olympic Association – to give away over £1 million to help projects for young people aged under 18 across England, Wales and Scotland.

The competition has three categories: Education & Arts, Sport, and Health, each with the the following prizes:

  • First prize: £100,000
  • Second prize: £50,000
  • Third prize: £20,000

Alongside the top prizes, there are smaller individual prizes of £1,000 up for grabs during April and May 2020, and 87 shortlisted finalists who do not win one of the main prizes will receive £5,000 each as runners-up.

Entering is quick and easy. All you need to do is complete the online application form, explaining why your group or organisation deserves funding and what you will spend the £1,000 on should you be lucky enough to win.

In June, the Persimmon Charitable Foundation will meet to select three finalists for each of Persimmon’s 32 UK businesses – one from each category of health, education & arts and sport to represent them in the national final.

A public online vote of all 96 finalists, running from July to September, will determine the national winners.
