SUPPORTING WELSH COMMUNITIES

Let's make a difference together

The Fund for Wales makes a difference now and in the future by encouraging giving to fund community projects across Wales.  By giving today your gift will be matched by the Big Lottery Fund, doubling the impact of your philanthropy. 

The Fund for Wales is a unique national community endowment fund which supports small inspiring charities and community groups across the country. Connecting people who care with causes that matter, the Fund is building a vibrant community of donors whose gifts - of all sizes - nurture Welsh culture, heritage and environment, and improve the lives of people across Wales.

You choose which theme you want to support and grants are awarded every year from the Fund for Wales to meet local needs.  

Give now by texting RHOI05 and your gift amount to 70070 

 

 Why support the Fund for Wales?

There are more than 30,000 community groups and charities in Wales which are strengthening their communities and meeting local needs - often on a shoestring budget or voluntary basis. They understand their challenges and ambitions, and work hard to address key issues and achieve the aspirations of people in their neighbourhoods.

85% of charitable giving goes to only 5% of charities: this indicates that people find it harder to donate to smaller community organisations, and means that groups which make a big difference locally, can miss out on people’s generosity.  The Fund for Wales enables everyone who cares about Wales to join their donations together -  to help people working at the grassroots to achieve lasting change in their own communities.  

Be part of something big today for small communities across Wales tomorrow
