Alex Dower – Creating Freedom
As the leading grant-making charity in Milton Keynes, we offer a broad range of services to support our local voluntary sector. The main areas of support we provide are:
Grants - financial support to aid the work of charities and not-for-profit organisations operating in the unitary borough of Milton Keynes
Property & Land - we offer space from our extensive portfolio which is made available at subsidised rates to the local voluntary sector
Acorn House and Midsummer House - Our flagship building, Acorn House, provides first-rate conference and meeting room facilities, and office accomodation for many local VCS services, including the Citizen's Advice Bureau, Women & Work, MK Act and Community Action MK. With the purchase of our neighbour building, Midsummer House, in December 2012, we aim to expand these services to many new VCS groups.
Localgiving - we are rolling out this new online fundraising facility for MK charities and community groups. It is a great way to get online and raise unrestricted funds for your group
Community Car Raffle - each year we manage this community fundraising event, which allows MK charities to raise funds for their activities by selling raffle tickets in thecentre:mk
Signposting & Advisory Service - we aim to continue to improve and strengthen this area of support and plan to develop this facility on our website in the coming months.
