At Waitrose & Partners, we are part of the communities we work in and this is our way of giving something back.
We started our green token scheme in 2008 and it’s now the longest-running community initiative of its kind. In-store and online, we donate a portion of money between different charities and non-profits each month –and our customers decide who gets what.
How it Works
Every month, each store donates a share of £1,000 (£500 in convenience shops) between three causes. These could be for local causes like school equipment upgrades, social welfare carers, aged care or health and wellbeing charity activities.
In store, customers are given a green token at the checkout to place in one of three boxes each allocated to a different cause. The more tokens a cause receives, the bigger the donation it receives*.
Local groups can contact their local Waitrose & Partners store directly to apply for a donation. Our Partners then vote on three causes to support each month.
