The Moto Foundation is a grant-making charity that makes a positive difference to the communities we are part of. We grant funds to charities neighbouring our sites and with support of our Moto colleagues.
We also enjoy a fantastic relationship with schools in our communities.
One of the Moto Foundation’s objectives is to reach out into the community and add as much value as we can. Back in 2005 when our charity was launched each Moto location was given the opportunity to adopt a local school.
This partnership opportunity has made it possible for Moto to focus its’ support on building strong community links with one school – and in some cases several schools. The schools that form part of our ‘Adopt a School’ programme are weaved into our community activities. Adopted schools can apply for community grants, take part in Moto Foundation competitions with amazing prizes and are invited to site to help with fundraising activities, such as manning a tombola table on an event day or singing carols at Christmas.
Some of the Adopted School projects the Foundation has funded include:
- Funding and planting sensory gardens
- Funding musical instruments allowing more children access to learn a musical instrument
- Improving school libraries with books to encourage children to be inspired by books
- Funding and supporting new sports equipment
- Setting competitions and supporting initiatives that are linked to the education of environmental topics, including recycling and creative writing campaigns
Adopted School Book Programme
Since 2006 we have given over 172,000 books to our adopted schools nationwide. We are very proud of this very valuable contribution to our schools. We identified a real need to assist schools struggling to fund adequate resources for their literacy schemes and school libraries. Our campaign is supported by the generosity of our supporters and visitors to Moto service areas.
We are very proud to partner with Oxford University Press for our book programme. Oxford University Press has supported our programme from the beginning and we are extremely grateful for their help in making this fantastic project possible.
