Do you or your business support local charities? Do you wish you could do more?
The Foundation Club can help! The Club is a supporters’ scheme for individuals and businesses who, like us, are motivated to make a difference in Calderdale. There are many benefits to joining the Club, set out below.
Your membership fee/donation of £600 (£50 monthly) does two things:
- first, it is used as a contribution to the Community Foundation’s running costs, helping us to sustain and further develop our catalyst role and our impact
- second, as an introductory offer for the first year of membership, the Foundation will match-fund your £600 membership fee/donation pound-for-pound and convert this into a charitable donation to one of four charitable causes.
In addition, Foundation Club members:
- receive regular email updates on the work of the Foundation, tailored to your interests, which you can share with your family, customers, or staff
- have the opportunity to engage more intentionally in the Foundation’s work and impact, for instance via a new programme of after-work Reception Events for supporters and potential new supporters
To become a Foundation Club supporter please click here to download the standing order form, if you wish to donate £50 a month, and here to download the application form. Please return both of the forms or just the application form and a cheque for £600 made out to CFFC and post to The Community Foundation for Calderdale, 1855 Building, Discovery Road, Halifax, HX1 2NG.
The application form will ask you to choose where your match funded donation should be spent. We recommend choosing one of our strategic priority themes, on the basis that these have been identified from our Vital Signs research as the most pressing issues facing local people. You can read more about our priority themes and Vital Signs research HERE
We will then ensure your match funded donation goes to an appropriate local charity supporting local people in your chosen priority theme, when they need it most.
