The Community Foundation welcomes support from all sections of the community.

Becoming a member is one way of supporting our work.

You can pay your subscription annually or as a monthly standing order.


As a member you will be invited to Foundation events, such as grant presentation evenings, fundraising activities and our Annual General Meeting at which you will be able to vote.

You will also receive copies of our Yearbook and newsletters and be kept up to date with new grant programmes.


As an individual tax payer if you include the Gift Aid section when you complete and return the application form, the Community Foundation can get an extra 28 pence for every pound you give.

Business membership is not eligible for Gift Aid but may offset their donation against corporate tax by as much as 30% of the donation.
