Introducing The White Stuff Foundation
The White Stuff Foundation supports local community charities, wherever we are. Our mission is to brighten and enhance the communities where we live and work and we wanted to take the opportunity to share some of the great work we do.
Established back in 2010…
The White Stuff Foundation was established during our Silver Jubilee celebrations and ever since then we’ve been supporting charities throughout the UK, wider Europe and India. Each of our lovely shops, head office and distribution centre has their own small and local Charity partner, who we’ve collectively donated over £3 million to since we began. With over 130 partner charities supported by our colleagues, we are able to really make an impact on the local communities in which we operate.
Our colleagues love to get involved in fundraising activities
Whichever part of the business you join, you’re bound to have the opportunity to get involved within the work of the Foundation. Our colleagues run an array of fundraising events during the year with each of our partner charities receiving the funds from their partner location; from the art of hosting a delightful bake sale to the creative customer engagement evenings and a few sponsored runs thrown in, it’s guaranteed there is something to get involved with! In addition to this, we also give all our colleagues the opportunity to support causes close to their own heart, whether this is through community days, our matched funding scheme or the Community Chest funding initiative.
Meet Derek, White Stuff Foundation Manager
Derek joined White Stuff in 2017 and his role is to support the business and its colleagues to make a difference in their local communities. The Foundation currently has over 130 partners, therefore Derek works closely with our shop teams providing support when needed, whilst also working closely with the business to ensure we continue true to our mission.
