Screwfix Foundation raises £10m since launching in 2013

The Screwfix Foundation has raised £10 million to support charities and non-profit organisations across the UK since its launch.

Set up in 2013, the Screwfix Foundation’s purpose is to support projects that have a significant impact on the lives of people in need by fixing, repairing, maintaining, and improving community facilities and homes.

Through Screwfix’s partnership with micro-donation charity Pennies, The Screwfix Foundation has received more than 29 million micro-donations from customers rounding up their online orders, raising over £4.6million for charity.

Approximately 100,000 micro-donations are made each week on average through Pennies. In 2021, customer donations made through Pennies raised more than £1.25million for charity.

In addition to supporting local communities in need, a proportion of the funds raised through The Screwfix Foundation are donated to its charity partner, Macmillan Cancer Support, with over half a million pounds donated to date.

In 2021, The Screwfix Foundation fully funded almost all of the grants made by Macmillan Cancer Support for home improvements. These are one-off, means-tested payments towards home improvements that can improve the quality of life for those affected by cancer.

John Mewett, Screwfix CEO and trustee of The Screwfix Foundation, said: “I’m truly overwhelmed by the generosity of Screwfix customers and colleagues. It is an incredible privilege to provide grants to thousands of charities and not-for-profit organisations in need across the UK and it wouldn’t be possible without the support of our customers and colleagues.

“To have raised over £10m in under 10 years is a phenomenal achievement and I would like to say a big thank you to those who have kindly donated and supported, whether that’s through fundraising activities or rounding up your online order. We look forward to supporting even more charities and communities in need, in the future”.
