By matching donors with do-ers, grants from the Foundation’s Funds make a big difference and help to build a better future for everyone. Since we began we have distributed over £10M into Devon Communities across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay. In the last six years we have grown our endowment into over £6.7M.
In 2015 thanks to generous donations we were able to fund 183 local projects by investing £369,842 in grants, helping to support 53,460 people across the county making an immediate impact on their lives now and leaving a lasting legacy for the future.
Our grants are made across nine Thriving Communities themes:
- Assist families in need
- Bring people together
- Develop life skills
- Enable disabled people
- Encourage safety and resilience
- Help people to find and keep a home
- Keep people safe and well
- Offer training and work opportunities
- Promote access to arts, culture and nature
