Setting up a fund through Dorset Community Foundation is similar to having your own charitable trust but without the hassle of administration or worrying about governance, where the funds are going, recruiting trustees, producing audited accounts and reporting to regulators. We take care of that.
It’s quick and easy to start and whatever your reasons or motivations for giving, we’ll ensure your fund is future proof, suits your wishes and your circumstances. With access to our expert team, deep community knowledge, research and advice on giving we’ll guide you through options of privacy or receiving public recognition and getting regular feedback and reports on how you’re changing lives and making a difference.
