Creating a Fund
People and businesses create grant making funds to support the people and causes which they care about most. By utilising the knowledge and expertise of our staff, trustees and volunteers grants are channelled to best effect giving donors a great sense of satisfaction and confidence.
Since 1999 over fifty different grant making funds have been created and a full list of active funds is available here.
The creation of a fund is an enjoyable and rewarding experience. We work with our donors to learn about their needs and wishes and create funds which match their interests and need in the community. Each fund has a named member of staff attached to it as a key contact point. Funds are governed by an agreement setting out the objects, type and terms of the fund.
Fund holders receive regular reports about the grants made through their funds. All funded projects are asked to complete monitoring forms and to provide information and testimonies from the people assisted. In addition fund holders can visit projects if they wish.
