About 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 1500 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 £1 million (and counting) to causes close to the hearts of Pavers, Jones Bootmaker and Herring Shoes colleagues.
