Dedicated donor funding that transforms lives in Dorset
Voices from Dorset Community Foundation and Stakeholders.
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.
We have worked with Caroline who is a manager for Citizens Advice over the years to disperse donations raised through our Surviving Winter Appeal.
The next time you lift the lid on your recycling bin STOP! The item in your hand could be needed by a charity, playgroup, faith group or children’s centre.
Another fascinating and stimulating insight into what makes the work of Dorset Community Foundation so worthwhile! Read my blog article about the Seeing is Believing visits I took part in last month to see three of the projects the Foundation has supported in action.
Our Chairman, inspired by the recent Ambassadors gathering event, is reflecting on his journey so far and explaining how we can all help achieve our targets of raising funds to help those most in need.
Our Surviving Winter Appeal, launched five years ago as an opportunity for local people to recycle unwanted winter fuel allowance, proves how galvanising local support can be!
