Inspiring Philanthropy in Somerset

We have been providing a simpler and more effective way for donors to make a lasting difference in Somerset since 2002.

By working together with individuals, families and businesses we increase the impact of local philanthropy, creating more vibrant and inclusive communities in our county.

If you are a grassroots community group, grants are now available up to the value of £1,500 from the newly launched Somerset Fund. Somerset Community Foundation (SCF), who manages the fund, is encouraging applications from smaller groups that run on less than £50,000 per year. The grants will be ‘unrestricted’, which means they can be used to pay for ongoing running costs, and the deadline to apply is Friday 22 February, 2019. If you run a business and would like to increase the impact of your charitable giving by up to 80% the Somerset Fund may also be of interest to you.
