Create a business/corporate fund

The relationship between local businesses and charities is well established, but often the choice to work with larger, national charities is favoured – simply because it isn’t always easy to find or know how best to support smaller charities that operate right on your doorstep. 

Importantly, for your employees, clients and customers, it is these very charities that matter most to them, and have the greatest impact on their lives.

At Suffolk Community Foundation, many businesses have already created funds in their name, which offer all the flexibility and control without the administrative burden and with protections in place to ensure that money is spent ethically and that your generosity makes the biggest difference. 

Take a look below at some of our existing business and corporate funds, or simply contact a member of our team who will be delighted to have an initial conversation about creating a fund for you.
