Supporting our Work

In addition to recognising the value of the Foundation in terms of its services to donors, Fund holders and beneficiaries, many of our supporters recognise our role in stimulating charitable giving, encouraging philanthropy and advocating on behalf of the charity and voluntary sector.

“I love the fact that my donation to the core costs of the Foundation means that I’m playing a part in raising one million pounds a year to grant to groups across Wales.”

IH, Foundation supporter

“I am a Trustee of several charities, and I know that running a charity isn’t cheap! Although many people don’t like to contribute towards administration costs, I think it’s more strategic to make grants to the heart of an organisation’s infrastructure, so enabling charities to get on with their impressive work with appropriate resourcing levels.”

DMD, Foundation supporter
