Announcing our new Charity Partner, Gloucestershire Community Foundation

12th July 2022

Gloucestershire Community Foundation

 

As a not-for-profit organisation, we feel giving back to our community is paramount and we are proud to support a charity each and every year. This year we are excited to announce that Gloucestershire Community Foundation will be our charity of the year!

We voted as a committee to support this charity as they greatly benefit local communities and can fully integrate into the CE Glos culture by attending meetings and events, we are looking forward to our future partnership.

About GCF

Gloucestershire Community Foundation was founded to support the local community – they have built a charitable foundation and use it to grant funds to community groups and provide help where it is most needed in the community. Over the last 2 years, they have awarded grants totalling over 2M to over 340 Gloucestershire-based communities and organisations.

Their impact on the local community is huge, with over 50% of their funds benefitting disadvantaged children and young people, 13% benefitting older people and 7% of people in poverty.

To learn more, read their impact report or their mission and vision statement. 

GCF will benefit from donations from our events, and any of our fundraising efforts as well as any future collaborations.
