Charitable Giving at East Midlands Airport


Covid-19 has had a significant impact on all of us, but people who struggle in normal times have been pushed even further into hardship. This is why in April 2020 we took the decision to temporarily freeze our EMA Community Fund and Community Sponsorship programmes, so we can redirect this money to community groups which are supporting vulnerable people during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The airport takes its role as a member of the local community very seriously and we’re proud to have been able to set up our COVID-19 Community Relief Fund and make a real difference in the local area.

The COVID-19 Community Relief Fund has already awarded funds of over £23,000 to 36 local community groups including several local Food Banks, local groups making scrubs for the NHS, providing bikes for key workers so they can continue to get to work without having to use public transport, supporting the elderly and a range of other great causes.

The fund is currently open for a second round of applications and the application form can be found here
