For individuals and families

As individuals or families, it can be difficult to identify the right charitable organisations to support to meet your philanthropic goals and be confident that your donation will be used effectively.

By donating through us, we make giving easy and support you to ensure your funds are effectively used so that you can experience the joy of giving. Whether you are an individual, family or business, we will work with you to create a fund, tailoring the criteria and priorities for the fund to ensure you achieve your charitable goals.

For individuals or families there are two ways of giving. You can set up a Charitable Fund or give to a Collective Fund. Once your charitable fund is set up our expert team will recommend grant applications from local charities and community groups that meet your criteria up to four times a year.
