17 May 2017

The next deadline for the Local Community Projects Fund and the Environmental Grants programme is 24 June 2017. Grants of up to £2,000 are available.

Greggs Foundation is more likely to make grants to local organisations who have a Greggs shop in their region. Most not-for-profit organisations can apply* but preference will be given to small, locally based and community-led organisations with a turnover of under £300,000 a year.

Local Community Projects Fund

In addition, the Foundation expects projects to show that they have helped beneficiaries in at least one of the following ways

  • decreased social isolation
  • improved health and wellbeing
  • improved resilience/coping mechanisms
  • improved life skills
  • improved opportunities

Funding is not available for ongoing running costs, major capital projects or purchasing a vehicle.

*The following groups cannot apply: animal charities, "friends of" associations, sports clubs, and uniformed groups such as scouts and guides.
