Every donor is different and we can work with you or your advisors to develop your own giving strategy.
All funds contribute to the charitable costs of our philanthropy, funding and leadership work, meaning we can continue growing to serve the needs of our communities even better in future.
Donor Advised Funds: Donor advised funds give you the opportunity to select charitable groups to receive grants from your fund. Gloucestershire Community Foundation welcomes donors' active involvement in the grant making process and provides advice and administrative support for your fund as required. Such funds may also be set up to support specific areas or issues.
Field of Interest Funds: These enable you to support a broad area of need, such as young people or the homeless and allows the Foundation to find the best projects for your support.
Area Funds: These funds are used to respond to the most pressing needs of our communities in Gloucestershire, with the responsibility for the funds resting with the Foundation's Trustees.
Designated Funds: Designated funds support specific charitable organisations you identify. If over time, the named charity is no longer active or providing the required service, another organisation with a similar purpose would be selected to receive the grant.
