Somerset is beautiful place to live, but there are many people within the county
who need a helping hand. There are countless local charities and organisations
throughout Somerset, working in our villages and towns, transforming people’s
lives and building stronger communities. They deserve our support.
Community Foundation provides a straightforward way for local donors
to make a lasting difference to their local community. We make local giving easier, and much more effective.
Donors are increasingly looking at which causes they give to and how their donations
are used. Many of us would like to support our local community but we want to
be sure that our funds are making a real difference to people’s lives,
and reflect our personal interests.
The Foundation has the local knowledge, experience and flexibility
to help anyone support local causes and target funds where they are most needed
in Somerset. Donors can use our expertise to give effectively and achieve their
personal charitable goals.

The Community First Programme can add £1 to every £2 donated to our endowment fund. For higher rate taxpayers this can mean almost trebling the net value of donations after gift aid and tax relief. Corporate donations and trust transfers can also be matched. To find out more contact Justin Sargent by e-mail or call 01749 344949.

Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, we get an extra
28 pence from the Inland Revenue, helping your donation go further.
Imagine what a difference that could make and it doesn’t cost
you a thing. If you want your donation to go further, please download
