Pret Foundation Trust

The Pret Foundation Trust supports over 40 charities up and down the UK in the communities local to our shops. This year, as well as donating money, we have provided everything from showers and sleeping bags to food shopping and chefs.

The PFT has a simple goal – to alleviate poverty in the UK by helping break the cycle of homelessness.

 How do Charities Apply for Funding?

In order for charities to receive funding from the Pret Foundation Trust they must be:

  • A registered charity
  • Set up to support the homeless in some way
  • Local to a Pret shop
  • Receiving no more than 20% of income via statutory funding
  • Solving a real problem in a practical way

Please contact our Pret Foundation Manager, Giovanna Pasini – who will be happy to chat to you, if you would like to apply for funding.

Please note: Basingstoke Voluntary Action work closely with the local community to raise awareness of grants and also assist with advice and guidance on applications etc. If you apply for this or any other grant, please let us know via email to enable us to understand what is being applied for. Also, if you are in fact successful in receipt of any grant please let us know to enable reporting of such funding locally.
