Grant making activity

Grants to local charities in which members of staff are involved

WHSmith Trust provides grants to support the excellent voluntary efforts of WHSmith staff in their local communities. The Trust will match employee fundraising up to £1000 and team fundraising up to the value of £2,000.

Employee involvement takes many different forms, ranging from sporting challenges to raise sponsorship, holding a fundraising event or volunteering time to give day-to-day help to a charity or school. Organisations supported include local hospices, schools and brownie packs, and both national and local charities.

Volunteers in Schools

The Trust’s ‘Volunteers in Schools’ scheme aims to support members of staff who are regularly involved as representatives on either a school’s governing body, or Parent Teacher Association.
