Vision, Mission and Values

The Dorset Community Foundation was founded with one simple aspiration – to make a difference in the lives of others through thoughtful, effective philanthropy. We are a charitable organisation that helps individuals, families, trusts and businesses achieve their charitable goals by offering tools and resources that make giving easy, flexible and effective.

Our Vision is to create united and thriving communities by fostering a culture of giving and philanthropy in Dorset.

Our Mission is raising funds for those most in need in Dorset.

Our Values are:

Knowledge – in our understanding of local communities and local issues

Collaboration – working together with individuals, families, companies, local and central Government and third sector organisations

Commitment – to addressing disadvantage and making a real difference now and in the future

Integrity – being honest, open and reliable in everything we do

Accountability – to our donors, partners and the local community

Transparency – in the way we work and how we manage funds and the grant process
