Named Immediate Impact Funds enable you to make a donation (usually every year), with the purpose of awarding the sum in grants either straight away, or at points throughout the year, to make an immediate impact.
An Immediate Impact Fund requires a minimum donation of £25,000 and allows you, the fundolder, to support your chosen causes as soon as you wish.
We work closely with you to outline the key causes or areas which you wish to support through your philanthropy, summarised in a Fund Agreement.
Depending on how you would like to interact with your fund the Foundation can present you with proposals which meet the themes of your fund, allowing you to decide exactly which groups you’d like to support. We can arrange project visits before or after awarding your grants to give you a true insight into the difference your fund is making.
