Cardiff Airport is committed to supporting the ‘third sector’ in Wales. We will select one charity to support per year (financial year April – March).
Preference will be given to charities which fit the following criteria;
The Charity must be proactive in utilising Airport support and must agree to promote the Airport through joint PR opportunities.
Applications are currently closed, we will open to new Charity Support applications in 2022.
To apply, a charity must provide:
Once the application form has been completed it will be assessed by the Working Group who will shortlist to three potential options based upon the criteria above. The Working Group will inform the charity whether the application has been successful in being shortlisted but will not supply any reasons for non selection and will not enter into any discussions concerning its choice.
All Cardiff Airport staff will be given the option to vote on their preferred Charity, with the Charity getting the most individual votes being selected. The chosen Charity will be notified and publically announced ahead of the start of the financial year.
The chosen Charity will liaise directly with the Working Group as to the fundraising activities to be undertaken in association with the Airport.
