Greggs Foundation Environmental Grants
Small: Up to £10,000
4 Mar 2017
Using money from the 5p levy on carrier bag sales in Greggs shops, the Greggs Foundation has established the Environmental Grants scheme and is offering both large and small grants for projects which make a difference to local areas, with preference given to projects that involve or benefit people who are disadvantaged.
Organisations that are based near a Greggs shop will be given priority.
Funding is available for projects that benefit the local environment in a way that will improve people’s lives.
All projects must have environmental benefit. Priority will be given to projects that benefit disadvantaged people, which could include the following groups:
People with disabilities or suffering chronic illness.
People living in a disadvantaged area.
People living in an area with poor access to the environment.
Isolated older people.
Other identified need.
Grants can cover the purchase of equipment, sessional salary costs, purchase of trees/plants, small capital projects and learning activities.
