Connecting causes that matter with people who care
We provide grants to help charities and community organisations who are supporting local people facing disadvantage, to improve their lives.
We do this by working with individuals, families, businesses, professional advisors, and charitable trusts, helping them to fund local groups that are tackling the issues they care about most.
We understand the vital role of Suffolk’s community groups and grassroots charities in making a difference in people’s lives.
We champion your organisation by connecting you with our donors and funds which will support you to be stronger.
The benefit of working with us is that we have the connections and experience to help you give to the issues you care about.
Every gift, large or small, makes a positive difference to individuals and to communities right here in Suffolk.
What we do
Our work is set against the current backdrop of rising levels of need in Suffolk, with an estimated 75,000 now living in poverty.
Partnering with the VCFSE sector demonstrates that the will in Suffolk to provide support remains undiminished.
We have the privilege of building long-term and trusted relationships with many professional advisors and their clients.
An advisor’s expertise, when combined with the Foundation’s deep knowledge of local need, continues to provide wonderful opportunities for those who care about Suffolk to realise their charitable ambitions locally.
We provide a range of options for private clients, including:
- Legacies & gifts in wills
- Transferring the burden of running a charitable fund
- Creating a personal fund
- Creating a memorial fund
- Trust transfers
