Young people making a difference in Dorset communities with the help of #iwill funding

The iwill funding programme at Dorset Community Foundation is part of a national campaign to make Social Action part of the lives of young people in the UK; increasing their involvement in campaigning, fundraising and volunteering. For the last two years, we have been making grants to local community groups and charities who provide such opportunities for young people in Dorset.

The projects we have supported illustrate that young people want to get involved in their wider community and contribute their time and energy to the causes that matter to them.

The Challenges of Grant-Making

Ellie joined the Foundation as Grants Manager in early July 2016. With a background in raising funds for small charities in Dorset, she has been discovering how challenging it can be to select groups for grant funding.
