The Pavers Foundation

The Pavers Foundation was launched in 2018, with an incredible initial donation of £2.5 million from Pavers Shoes and the private estate of the late Catherine Paver, to enable charitable giving by the business and its 1700 employees. 

The Pavers Foundation is dedicated to making a meaningful impact on the communities around us. Each employee can submit grant applications for causes close to their heart, relating to health, education or community. The Foundation also supports one national or significant charity per year, which is voted for by employees.​

Each year Pavers Shoes gives 2% of net profit, alongside the total profits from the sale of carrier bags in stores, to ensure the Pavers Foundation can continue to make effective and positive changes in local communities and beyond.

The Foundation has awarded over £800,000 (and counting) to causes close to the hearts of Pavers, Jones Bootmaker and Herring Shoes colleagues.

Charity of the year

The Foundation supports one national charity per year, initiated by a select committee, a selection of charities are appointed for nomination amongst Pavers employees.


We welcome applications from all of our colleagues, pledging to promote healthcare and well-being, supporting education initiatives and enhancing community projects.



Pavers Shoes and the Pavers Foundation has joined forces with The Silver Line who combat loneliness and isolation in older people across the UK.

We launched this exciting collaboration with a £5,000 donation from the Pavers Foundation. This donation will help fund The Silver Line’s free 24-hour helpline, which provides older people with the opportunity for social interaction, information and advice.
