Drive for Charity Partner
The M6toll’s Drive for Charity initiative has donated more than £1million during the 18 years since the road opened. During the Covid-19 pandemic we continued our support of the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity (MAAC) with a further donation of £15,000 partnering the existing Sky Champs educational campaign, providing fun educational resources for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 students in reading, writing, maths and creative skills.

2022/23 – Drive for Charity Funding
The mission of our Drive for Charity Scheme is to make a difference to the lives of people in our local communities. We take our role as a corporate citizen very seriously and we look for opportunities to enhance the prosperity and wellbeing of the communities in which we operate and serve – our people look for opportunities to be involved. After a difficult few years following the Covid-19 pandemic now more than ever the health, safety and wellbeing of our colleagues, customers and local communities together with the environment are at the forefront of our minds.
How to apply for Drive for Charity funding
If you are a charity or organisation that is looking to implement an initiative or project up to £5,000 that will benefit the health, safety and wellbeing of our local community or our environment and you feel would align well with the M6toll then we would love to hear from you.
We hope to provide funding to the right project but are also keen to work with our chosen charity, creating a great partnership whereby our staff can also get involved and give back through volunteering and fundraising opportunities.
If you have a project which you feel aligns well with our Drive for Charity, please email details to D4C@m6toll.co.uk

Drive for Charity in the Community
We have a cash fund of up to £1,500 to give away every month to charities, schools, sports clubs or voluntary organisations helping to enhance the lives of local people. We especially want to help those smaller causes that might not otherwise attract financial aid.
Organisations* can be nominated to receive a funding boost of up to £1,500. So, whether you need £500 for new junior football team training tops, £1,000 for school library books or £1,500 to help fund a hospice at home service, we want to hear from you.

Drive for Charity on the Road
Schools, Colleges and Sixth Form Academies in Staffordshire and Stoke, who own and maintain their own mini-bus, are eligible for free use of the M6toll for an initial period of one year (September 2022 - July 2023) by way of an M6toll TAG.
Our Drive for Charity on the Road scheme is currently supporting 25 local schools and colleges in Staffordshire. In order to receive a TAG, qualifying schools and colleges will be asked to fill in a short application to show evidence that the minibus is used for school/college use only, together with an estimation of annual usage on the M6toll. Upon receipt of this information, we will prepare a TAG and arrange for this to be sent out.
The M6toll TAG will entitle the school/college to free, unlimited usage of the M6toll for an initial period of one year, in return for which the school must be agreeable to display an M6toll logo decal on the mini-bus.
If you would like an application for our 2022-23 scheme, please email D4C@m6toll.co.uk
