Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has pledged to give more than half of his £6.9bn fortune to charity. Perhaps billionaires have a duty to be generous, but philanthropy is not the preserve of the rich and famous.
You too can make a significant difference to your local community by making a pledge to the grant making charity, Community Foundation for Calderdale.
Your pledge can be a one-off donation
A pledge for a monthly donation via direct debit
Or by pledging to take part in fundraisers once a month , every other month etc.
