The Greggs Foundation is a registered charity, established in 1987 by Ian Gregg, who believed that successful organisations have a duty to do positive things with part of their profits and help people living in disadvantaged areas.
How do we operate?
We give grants to organisations with charitable objectives in the North East of England. Divisional Charity Committees based within the divisions of Greggs plc around the UK also make grants under these same guidelines. Seven voluntary Trustees manage the Foundation. They include the Company Secretary of Greggs plc, a senior member of its head office finance team, Ian Gregg's two daughters and independent specialists with knowledge of the charitable sector.
