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. We are very passionate about working closely with donors to ensure their ideas and ambitions are fully supported.

These are some groups that have been funded by The Sapphire Fund’s grants panel:

  • ActivLives
  • 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
  • Mid Suffolk Voluntary Organisations Forum

Below are some other examples of projects funded by supporters of Suffolk Community Foundation.
