The journey from giving to grant

Unlike traditional grantmaking trusts and foundations, we develop lasting partnerships with individuals, families, businesses, public bodies and trusts. We work together to ensure that acute areas of need in Suffolk are addressed compassionately, respectfully and sustainably. We are committed to deepening levels of engagement in everyone who seeks to change lives and improve futures.

Our Annual Reviews, which take place towards the end of each year, are opportunities for all our patrons, trustees, staff, volunteers and supporters to enjoy an evening to review our work over the past year, as well as to meet with representatives from some of the charities we have supported.

Through a selection of videos listed below, you can hear from some of our donors talking about their giving experience and grant recipients talking about the need in their community and how their grants have helped them.
