We believe in creating positive and lasting change in our world and one of the ways we do this is through the Whitbread Foundation.
The Whitbread Foundation supports programs that break the cycle of poverty and ill health for the disadvantaged through education.
Believe in a better tomorrow.
The Whitbread Foundation was established in honour of the late John and Margaret Whitbread who were great believers in community giving.
This year, the Whitbread Foundation surpassed the one million dollar milestone for funds donated to charities. Click here to read more.
