Philanthropy

Devon Community Foundation is a trusted philanthropy adviser offering each of our Fund holders and clients a bespoke service. We advise on where their priorities for local charitable giving can make the best impact, investing donations to maximise return and delivering precision grant making on their behalf.

We research and advise on needs and issues, conduct due diligence, report on impact and outcomes, and involve you as much or as little as you want. Better still it’s much, much easier than having a charitable trust with all the same benefits. In fact the Charity Commission acknowledges that Community Foundations have a reputation for the effective management of charitable funds in order to maximise their impact at local level.  You can read the full Charity Commission statement here and to find out how to give as a trust or foundation click here

Helping businesses focus their Corporate Social Responsibility really allows them to demonstrate they care about their employees, their customers and their local community. To find out more about how to give as a business click here

We are proud to have four of our donors become Philanthropy Fellows, working together with other givers across the South West to explore issues and share experience and knowledge. Find out more about one of our Philanthropy Fellowship Case Study.
