WHSmith Trust Community Grants

The Trust is an independent registered charity that aims to support good causes in the local communities where WHSmith operates, and also to promote literacy and a love of reading. Each year the Trust supports employees by matching their fundraising and volunteering for charities and schools. The Trust also makes donations to hundreds of schools across the UK and funds large scale literacy projects through its long-standing partnership with the National Literacy Trust. 

With the introduction of the new WHSmith Community Grants, the WHSmith Trust is now offering grants of up to £500 to voluntary organisations and schools from the proceeds of the compulsory carrier bag levies across the UK. 

The following community groups may apply for WHSmith Community Grants:

  • Registered or Exempt Charities
