Closing down a charity

The Charity Commission recommends making an effective use of remaining funds by transferring them to another charity with compatible purposes. DCF is a perfect organisation to transfer such funds to because of:

  • Our Dorset-wide reach
  • Our broad charitable objectives
  • Depending on the value of remaining funds/assets DCF may be able to establish a fund to continue running the good cause

The Charity Commission also acknowledges that community foundations have a reputation for the effective management of charitable funds in order to maximise their impact at local level, for more details, please click here.
