Apply for a Greggs Foundation Grant of up to £2,000

Foundation Logo

The Greggs Foundation are offering 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.

This is a great opportunity for Soroptimists to receive funding for a project they are looking to do in the community to improve the lives of women and girls.

What type of projects do they support?

They are interested in projects that improve resilience within your community. This can include sessional activities/respite support, equipment for sessional activities, trips and residential breaks. They are also interested in new approaches and innovative ideas as well as sustainable approaches to supporting your community. They do not fund running costs or continuation of existing and ongoing work.

All projects must support a community of interest, ie people who are:

  • Disabled or suffering chronic illness
  • Living in poverty
  • Voluntary carers
  • Homeless people
  • Isolated older people
  • Other demonstrable significant need

Where do they make grants?

They are more likely to make grants to local organisations who have a Greggs shop in their region. Please use the shop locator on the Greggs website to find your nearest shop.

How much do they give?

The maximum grant that they can give is £2,000.
