Charity and Trust Funds


Charity and trust funds

From its inception, the Community Foundation has provided an effective mechanism for other charities and trusts to meet their aims through establishing funds with us. In some cases, such funds enable a charity to reach areas it might not alone; in others, the original charity has wound up, but we continue its objectives through a Fund in its name.

To find out about how your charity and trust can transfer assets to the Community Foundation or work with us, click here.
