Greggs Foundation Local Community Projects Fund awards grants of up to £2,000 to enable not for profit organisations to do something they otherwise couldn’t afford to do.
Local Community Projects Funding is offered to organisations supporting people in need. Any not for profit organisation can apply, however, larger organisations with a turnover in excess of £300,000 will be unsuccessful.
The Fund is interested in projects that improve resilience within your community. This can include sessional activities/respite support, equipment for sessional activities, trips and residential breaks. The Fund is also interested in new approaches and innovative ideas as well as sustainable approaches to supporting your community. Running costs or continuation of existing and ongoing work will not be funded.
All projects must support a community of interest, i.e. people who are:
- Disabled or suffering chronic illness
- Living in poverty
- Voluntary carers
- Homeless people
- Isolated older people
- Other demonstrable significant need
The maximum grant is £2,000.
Grants are most likely to be made to local organisations who have a Greggs shop in their region.
