What we do

The Greggs Foundation is a grant-giving organisation aiming to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in the communities where Greggs operates. We believe lasting change occurs when communities can grow sustainably from within.

That’s why we create partnerships with businesses, local schools and community organisations to offer funds, food and resources to those who can benefit from our wider network of partners and volunteers.

We operate grant programmes in three key areas:

We couldn’t do this alone. Greggs donates at least 1% of annual profits to the foundation each year and we also work with a variety of external partners to support a vital network of school Breakfast Clubs and - with a growing waiting list of schools that require help - we're always looking for support. 

Are you interested in investing in young people and supporting the local community? You can find out more on our partner page:

Our Greggs Foundation Breakfast Club has allowed our children to develop socially and emotionally. We encourage children who have a poor diet and refuse breakfast to come along and this has helped relieve the pressure from parents. We offer games during breakfast time and children socially interact with each other well. We have seen families join us and have watched them bond with their children and other families.

The funding from The Greggs Foundation pays for our gym environment which is a huge part of our appeal to young people. The standards of the gym are so important when attracting people to train here. They want to see a good quality space with the right equipment and thanks to The Greggs Foundation we can deliver this.
