Community Fund in Wales
WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION IN WALES?
Here’s how they sum up their good work:
“The Fund for Wales was set up by the Community Foundation in Wales as a way for people to give to small but inspiring projects across our country. Uniquely it’s the only national community endowment fund in the world creating a community of donors who are giving back to Wales.
85% of charitable giving goes to only 5% of charities: people find it harder to give to smaller community organisations, meaning that groups which make a big difference locally can miss out on people’s generosity. The Fund for Wales means that everyone who cares about Wales can join their gifts together to help people working at grassroots level to achieve lasting change in their own communities.
Thanks to the Big Lottery Fund every donation to the Fund for Wales is now matched, making it the most effective time to give to this growing endowment fund. Be part of something big today for small communities across Wales tomorrow.”
