We can help you give locally
Start a Named Fund
Establish your own corporate Fund and distribute the dividend income as grants or opt for the flow-through model where money raised is distributed right away. Hybrid schemes are also available.
Join our new Fund
We are setting up a new Fund to make it easy for local companies to collectively give and support the county.
Safe online fundraisers
If you are raising money via JustGiving or similar sites then our charitable status ensures all donations are safe.
Many businesses like to play an active role in fundraising and grant-making. We very much encourage this approach as it is a great way for your team to enhance their local knowledge, share their priorities with us and feel personally invested in making a difference locally.
