As a large Welsh funder of the community and voluntary sector, the Foundation’s knowledge is increasingly being sought by other trusts and foundations to help penetrate high-impact grants into hard-to-reach communities. Our local knowledge gives us the capacity to fund smaller organisations which fall under the radar of larger Trusts and Foundations.
We distribute funds on behalf of a range of Charitable Trusts and Foundations which appreciate our knowledge of the voluntary sector in Wales, our robust assessment and monitoring of grants, and our evaluation and reporting mechanisms. With our local knowledge and experience of grant-making and community development in Wales, the Foundation is uniquely placed to offer other Charitable Trusts and Foundations a comprehensive and tailor-made grant-making service.
