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.

Last summer Somerset Bridge Primary School, in Bridgwater, received a grant of £1,652 from the Hinkley Point C (HPC) Community Fund, administered by Somerset Community Foundation (SCF), making a significant difference to pupils and their families during the summer holidays. With three million children in the UK at risk of going hungry during the school holidays every year, ‘Holiday Hunger’ is a reality for many families. This year, the holidays will add even more pressure to an already difficult situation.
