- Financial giving shall be for not-for-profit organizations with charitable purposes only. They will fund organizations that deliver activities which fit within the three focus areas of Families Matter, stated above as their Priorities Health, Place and Skills.
In order to focus their support most strongly, they do not support individuals, nor do they support:
- Are not charitable and do not operate on a not-for-profit basis
- Are not based in and working in England, Wales or Scotland
- Discriminate on the basis of race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion or national origin primarily promote political or religious viewpoints to their beneficiaries
- Primarily focus on animals
- Solely seek support for salaries. However, they will consider funding a proportion of a salary or sessional worker fees where these are directly linked to funded project delivery
- Use the funds to make grants, bursaries or financial donations to other organisations or individuals
- Solely seek to purchase something (e.g. the buying of a building or other significant purchase), except small items within Community Grants
- Are unable to supply appropriate registration and financial documents, bank details and personal details of trustees/directors cannot report back effectively on outcomes may be potentially harmful to the Warburtons business
Activities or projects that:
- Have a negative impact on the environment
- Benefit Warburtons' commercial business
- Have already taken place
- Are for sponsorship, advertising and promotion alone, which primarily generate commercial returns
- Need raffle prizes (though they can provide a donation for a raffle prize or a cause, but they cannot provide goods themselves)
- Individuals (as opposed to groups, teams or communities) that seek:
- Educational bursaries e.g. assistance to individuals for school, research projects, travel costs or college and university fees
- Third party fundraising (e.g. sponsoring an individual to complete a challenge)
