Where the funds come from…

Our Trustees

The Iceland Foods Charitable Foundation is registered with the charity commission and has its own group of trustees, chaired by Richard Walker. They listen closely to our colleagues and customers to ensure our giving has impact where it is needed.

“I am incredibly proud of the energy and dedication of our colleagues who have enabled us to support people in local communities, fund ground-breaking medical research, and take action to address some of the planet’s biggest environmental issues. The IFCF is not just a corporate foundation; it’s a community of over 30,000 passionate fundraisers, campaigners and activists, who happen to work for Iceland, and believe in and support the IFCF to help make the world a better place.”

Sir Malcolm Walker CBE
Trustee of the Iceland Foods Charitable Foundation and Founder of Iceland Foods

“It’s improving lives that really matters to me. It’s why I’ve trekked through Antarctica, jumped off tall buildings and climbed mountains – you’d have to be mad otherwise. Ever since I founded the company, giving back has been a cornerstone of our approach. I see the passion and the energy that our colleagues bring to our charitable activities and the heartwarming, generous support our customers provide and I know together we are genuinely making a real difference.”

Trustee of the Iceland Foods Charitable Foundation and CEO of Iceland Foods

“It never ceases to amaze me how our colleagues, customers and suppliers get behind and champion each and every one of our chosen charities. The immense efforts made by them have directly enabled the IFCF to donate millions of pounds to those charities close to our hearts. To be a Trustee to the Foundation gives me a huge sense of pride, and with everyone’s continued support the IFCF can continue to make an immeasurable difference to peoples’ lives.”

“One of the things that inspires me daily, is the sincere and shared passion of all of our colleagues, customers and suppliers to genuinely make a difference. I am honoured to be joining the trustee board of the foundation and pledge to do all that I can to help IFCF continue to make a real impact in our communities. I am particularly thrilled to be leading on this area of our work with children, especially since being lucky enough to have recently become a father myself”

Note on funding applications

The Iceland Foods Charitable Foundation raises and donates approximately £1 million each year. Funding for the current financial year is already fully committed.

We receive a huge volume of requests from the areas around our 1,000 stores and by focusing on our chosen partner charities we hope to make the best impact we can in those communities. We regret that we are therefore unable to consider requests for support from other good causes.
