We are one of 57 Community Foundations across the country committed to connecting our donors with grass roots projects.
Our aim is to make the process of giving an enjoyable and simple one for all our donors by offering a flexible, personal service.
We are local.
We understand the issues facing this community and we help ensure donations go where they’re needed most.
We are accountable.
We are quality accredited by the Community Foundation Network and governed by an active board of trustees who know our community well. Our grant-making programme is supported by a committee of experienced and impartial community representatives who ensure requests for funds are legitimate and are efficiently and carefully assessed.
We are flexible.
Our donors can have as much or as little involvement in the grant-making process as they choose. They can change their mind over time about the causes they want to support and vary the amount and regularity of donations.
We are knowledgeable.
We work with donors and their professional advisers (solicitors, accountants, and others) to ensure their gifts are both tax and cost-effective. We accept and invest a wide range of assets, ensuring they are safe-guarded for the future.
We are quick.
We respond to new challenges and social concerns as they arise. We allocate funds in response to specific requests and can set up a substantial named fund in just one meeting.
We are convenient.
Our donors can direct the requests for support they receive from charities to us and we deal with these on their behalf. Donors can channel all of their charitable giving through us.
We are your solution.
We give you the choice to either help tackle today's priorities or give to our endowed funds to make a longer-lasting and perhaps permanent difference to Milton Keynes.
