Building Futures: Public vote to decide national winners

03 September 2019 / 22:07
Through Building Futures, Team GB's partnership with Persimmon Homes, this month you have the chance to vote for UK based community projects to win grants of up to £100,000.

Following a selection process involving Team GB Olympic champions Callum Skinner and Kat Copeland, there are 96 entries who have made it through as finalists as Building Futures looks to support projects by giving away £1m this year. 

Each entry supports under 18s across Britain through sport, education & arts and health and were selected from a list of 4,000 who entered during February to May. 

Building Futures is being delivered through the Persimmon Charitable Foundation, which last year donated £620,000 to support children’s sport. 

One initiative from each category will go on to win £100,000 each through a national award scheme to be decided by this public vote.

As well as the £100,000 first prize, there will be a £50,000 second prize and a £20,000 third prize in each sector, while a further 87 shortlisted projects will each receive £5,000.

Online voting will close at midnight on September 27.
