Our Fund management services to businesses include:

Most businesses we work with have their own Immediate Impact Fund as this offers a tangible way of demonstrating their commitment to their community by supporting the very best community efforts. The minimum Fund value is £10,000 and the Foundation’s management fee charge is 10% of the Fund value.

Foundation Partners membership is an additional or alternative way to demonstrate your business’s commitment to the voluntary and charity sector in Wales. The annual membership fee is £5,000, of which 10% is given in strategic grants, the remainder supporting the development of The Community Foundation in Wales, enabling it to raise over £1 million every year for charities and community groups across the nation.

As a registered charity, it is important that our core events and publication costs are met by sponsorship. Sponsoring one of our events or publications offers your company a superb opportunity to support a well respected Welsh charity. The benefits for your company include high profile brand and logo placement and excellent networking opportunities.

Sponsorship ranges from £500 to £10,000 and can be agreed as a one-off or long term relationship. We will work with you to ensure that your company gets the most out of the sponsorship.
