• TSB Local Community Charitable Partner nomination Terms & Conditions

    In TSB branches and on tsb.co.uk, members of the public can nominate local eligible organisations for the chance to become one of TSB’s Charity Partners and benefit from our support as part of the Local Charity Partnership programme ("Charity Partner").

  • a) If an organisation is selected to be a Charity Partner, the TSB branch or site that has chosen to support that organisation (the "relevant TSB branch") will agree with the Charity Partner how best to support them. This may involve TSB staff in the relevant TSB branch:-

    • undertaking fundraising activities to raise money for the Charity Partner
    • volunteering their time with the Charity Partner
    • supporting awareness-raising activities in the local area

    b) The relevant TSB branch will aim to raise an agreed sum or donate a number of volunteering hours, but there is no guarantee that they will do so.

    a) You don't need to be a TSB customer or pay anything, but you do need to be resident in the UK and aged 18 or over to nominate an organisation.

    b) You may nominate as many eligible organisations as you like between 09:00 am on 08 May 2017 and 16:59 pm on 30 May 2017, but you can only nominate each organisation once.

    c) TSB staff, their family members, and anyone else connected with the Local Charity Partnership programme may submit nominations.

    a) To nominate an organisation (which must meet the eligibility criteria set out below), you must:

    a. In TSB branches, complete a nomination form (available in the branch) and hand in your completed nomination form to a TSB member of staff, or complete and submit via the touchscreen, between 09:00 am on 08 May 2017 and 16:59 pm on 30 May 2017; or

    b. Complete and submit the online nomination form available on the tsb.co.uk website between 09:00 am on 08 May 2017 and 16:59 pm on 30 May 2017.

    b) To make a nomination you'll need to give us your email address and the name, charity number, email address and postcode of the organisation together with a brief description of what it does.

    c) We will check all nominations for eligibility, against the eligibility criteria set out below. Nominations for ineligible organisations will be rejected.

    d) We will allocate organisations to a local TSB branch based upon the organisation’s postcode. If you tell us that the organisation usually delivers its services elsewhere, we will try to allocate it to a nearby TSB branch to where it operates but there is no guarantee that we will do so.

    a) Each relevant TSB branch will create a shortlist made up of the three organisations that receive the most nominations.

    b) If there is a tie and there are more than three organisations sharing the most nominations, all tied organisations will be included in the shortlist.

    c) The relevant TSB branch will then select one organisation from the shortlist to become its Charity Partner. It is not obliged to select the organisation with the most nominations.

    d) If the chosen organisation declines the opportunity to become a Charity Partner or doesn’t meet the eligibility criteria set out below, the relevant TSB branch will choose another organisation from the shortlist.

    e) If your nominated organisation is chosen, we may contact the named contact on your nomination form using the details that you supplied.

    f) If an organisation accepts the invitation to become a Charity Partner, that organisation’s eligibility will be confirmed by the relevant TSB branch and a formal agreement will be made with the relevant TSB branch.

    g) Charity Partner relationships will start on 04 September 2017 and end on 31 August 2018.

    h) We will not contact any unsuccessful organisation once a Charity Partner has been confirmed by the relevant TSB branch.

    a) We will accept nominations between 09:00 am on 08 May 2017 and 16:59 pm on 30 May 2017 (excluding Sundays in TSB Branches) (the “nomination window”).

    b) We will not consider any nominations received outside the nomination window.

    c) We will display the name of the successful Charity Partner in the relevant TSB branch from or around 04 September 2017.

    a) Only organisations that meet all of the following criteria will be eligible for nomination:

    • The organisation is either:
      - A charity (it can be a charitable trust, charitable incorporated organisation, charitable company or unincorporated association), either registered with the Charity Commission/Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, or that can demonstrate its charitable status by, for example, a tax reference number from HM Revenue & Customs; or
      - A not-for-profit organisation, like a community interest company, registered societies or not-for-profit company limited by guarantee. The not-for-profit company limited by guarantee should have a provision in its articles of association that prohibits the application of profits to members by way of dividend, and should require its funds to be used solely to further its objects.
    • Supports the local community either directly or indirectly.
    • Not on the Exclusion List set out below.
    • Does not pose a reputational risk to TSB Bank plc (as determined by TSB Bank plc).

    b) Nominated organisations will be reviewed by the relevant TSB branch to ensure that they meet the eligibility criteria. Only eligible organisations can be a Charity Partner.

    • National charities, including local branches of national charities

    • Organisations that solely support medical research
    • Sponsorship of individuals or groups
    • Advertising and marketing appeals
    • Organisations that solely redistribute funding or provide grants to other organisations and/or individuals
    • Expeditions or overseas travel
    • Organisations that solely benefit causes and/or people outside of the UK
    • Political lobbying or campaigning organisations
    • Building projects for places of worship other than where such buildings provide accommodation for community groups and help to support the local economy
    • Organisations that are raising funds solely to further their specific religious or ethnic values while excluding others.
    • Housing associations

    b) You cannot nominate an individual to become a Charity Partner.

    a) TSB is committed to supporting our local economies and communities. That’s why, each year, we run the Local Charity Partnership programme to partner each of our branches with a local charity. Any personal information that you provide to us will only be used for the purposes of this legitimate interest - running the TSB Local Charity Partnership programme.

    b) We may contact you in relation to your nomination, to notify you of the outcome of the Local Charity Partnership programme and to let you know when nominations are open again in future years.

    c) We will retain your personal details for up to 15 months, to enable us to notify you of your chance to nominate next year’s Charity Partner. If you take part in next year's and subsequent years' nominations, we will continue to hold your personal details to remind you each year of your chance to nominate that year's Charity Partner until you tell us that you do not want us to hold your data or you choose not to nominate a Charity Partner in a particular year.

    d) If you do not want us to use your personal information, please email us at [email protected]
