Giving to charity is a very personal experience. Some enjoy celebrating their gifts publicly and very much encourage others to do the same. However for some, philanthropy is a deeply private experience. For the creator of The Sapphire Fund the latter was key. Established after working closely with a professional advisor it was important to achieve anonimity whilst at the same time having a close affinity to the fund itself and types of project supported. The donor also very much enjoys active participation in the grantmaking process. Suffolk Community Foundation are very proud to work as closely to the donor’s wishes as possible.
These are the groups recently funded by The Sapphire Fund’s first ever grants panel:-
ActivLives, BARWOODS, Botesdale and Rickinghall Community Woodlands Project, Kernos Centre, Rickinghall Village Hall, Rural Coffee Caravan Information Project, Stonham Aspal Village Hall Management Committee, Suffolk Family Carers Suffolk,Young People’s Health Project, The Mix Stowmarket.
