An Introduction to Giving and Philanthropy
Suffolk benefits from an incredibly passionate and talented voluntary sector of over 5,000 charities and community groups, supported by over 100,000 volunteers. What you may not realise is just how essential their work is to changing local lives.
Over 50% of us will seek the support of a local charity in the coming year, and what many people don’t realise is that however severe the challenge, it is most likely to be a small local charity that will provide the grassroots support we all need.
Currently, 78% of all charitable giving reaches only the top 3% of the largest national and international charities, which means that only a tiny proportion of our giving currently goes to supporting the needs of local people.
We work with individuals, families, businesses, trusts and public sector partners to help strengthen their understanding, and financial support for the needs of people in Suffolk.
If you would like to get involved, please do get in touch with us – we would be delighted to discuss your ambitions and explore a way of giving to Suffolk that might work for you. Alternatively, you can give now.
