The Greggs Foundation Small Environmental Grant awards grants of up to £2,000 to not for profit organisations, with preference given to small, locally based and community led organisations with a turnover under £300,000 per annum. Schools are also encouraged to apply and are given the same level of priority as small locally based organisations.
Grants can be used for projects that improve the physical environment in a way that will improve people’s lives. This can include purchase of equipment, sessional salary costs, purchase of trees/plants, small capital projects and learning activities. The Foundation is also interested in new approaches and innovative ideas as well as sustainable approaches to supporting your local environment.
Successful applicants should be able to demonstrate improvements against at least one of our Key Performance Targets to be successful for a grant:
- People have better access to/are more likely to use their local environment
- People have improved their lives through participation in an environmental activity
- The local environment is improved as a result of a grant
Organisations close to a Greggs store are more likely to be funded.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme
