The next application deadline for the Greggs Foundation Local Community Projects Fund is the 9th March 2018.
The foundation is a grant making trust which distributes around £1.8 million per year to organisations throughout England, Scotland and Wales. The Local Community Projects Fund makes grants of up to £2,000 to not for profit organisations with a turnover of less than £300,000 a year who work to reduce the disadvantage of the most deprived people in the community.
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.
The Foundation are more likely to make grants to local organisations based near Greggs shops.
