Many individuals and families choose to plan their charitable giving through Sussex Community Foundation. They may choose to set up a Donor Advised Fund, contribute to our core costs or leave a legacy to Sussex.
The Field Family pictured above is one such family. The family have been funeral directors for over 300 years, moving to Sussex in the 1970s. Since then, the family have been significant contributors to the community life of the county. The family has been supporting us since 2008 and their fund has given out over £132,000 in grants to groups such as the Sailboat Project. “We continue to be impressed by the work the Foundation does supporting local charities and community groups in Sussex, transforming lives and helping to make Sussex a great place to live,” says Colin Field.

Friends of Sussex Community Foundation
Becoming a Friend of Sussex Community Foundation is a simple and accessible way to support Sussex. Our Friends support the development of Sussex Community Foundation’s core work offering expert local philanthropy advice to enable grants and build a stronger and more equal Sussex. We provide a high-quality service to the community but cannot do this without drawing support for the day-to-day costs of the Foundation itself. Friends pledge to make a regular gift which quite simply enables us to do what we do.
