HOW TO GIVE TO YOUR COMMUNITY
Whether you are an individual, company or charitable trust there are many ways you can help to support your local community.
At the heart of our Community Foundation is a growing endowment fund that provides income in perpetuity for grant-making to local community projects that are viable, well-managed and which will make a genuine difference.
Regardless of your local giving budget, we have flexible solutions to enable everyone to build funds to support their communities.
Donors can create a named fund to support deserving local projects in their area according to criteria set by the donor. A fund can support a geographical area or cause close to the donor's heart or a company's CSR policy. This is a low-cost alternative to setting up your own charitable trust.
Donors can gradually build up to a named fund, without having to donate a lump sum upfront. From just £250 a month you can build a lasting fund to support local causes that you care about.
Local groups can come together to form Giving Circles, pooling their resources, learning about their community and it's needs and deciding collectively where to give their money.
If you already have a charitable trust fund or money set aside for community giving, we can provide you with a low-cost comprehensive grant-making service. We currently run grant programmes for Comic Relief, Hampshire County Council, The Police and Crime Commissioner's Office and First Wessex Housing Association.
leave a legacy
This is a way of embracing the whole community for years to come. Instead of leaving a donation to a single charity or cause, we can help you support your community in accordance with your wishes and ensure that your legacy always reaches the heart of the community where it is most needed.
make a one off donation
You can make a one-off donation to any of our community funds and we will ensure your donation provides support for your local community projects.
