Using money from the 5p levy on carrier bag sales in Greggs shops, the Greggs Foundation’s Environmental Grants scheme aims to improve people’s lives in Great Britain.
The Gregg’s Foundation’s Environmental Grants programme is now inviting applications for grants of up to £2,000 for projects in England, Wales or Scotland that deliver a real benefit to the environment.
Projects must address one or more of the following:
- Improving the local environment.
- Insuring involvement of local communities.
- Delivering a sustainable and measurable difference.
- Supporting people in need.
The funding can be used to cover the purchase of equipment, sessional salary costs, purchase of trees/plants, small capital projects and learning activities.
Not-for-profit organisations with a turnover of £300,000 or less as well as schools in England, Scotland and Wales can apply. Organisations that are based near Greggs shops will be given priority.
The next deadline for applications is 9 March 2018.
