We are thrilled to highlight three funds recently set up at the Foundation and to extend our thanks to the donor.
The Munday Family Fund was formed after the family decided to seek advice on maximising the impact of their philanthropy in Sussex. The fund supports groups working with children and young people and the homeless across Sussex – two causes about which the family is very passionate.
The Newhaven EZ Community Fund follows a donation from the Newhaven Enterprise Zone, the organisation charged with helping the economic regeneration of the town. This new fund has been designed to complement the work of the Enterprise Zone by supporting projects which encourage a sense of place and build on the thriving community in Newhaven.
The Nino Fund makes grants to organisations working to promote environmental sustainability, healthy living and the outdoors and nature conservation in Sussex. After receiving a legacy, the donor consulted their professional advisor to find out how best to support smaller, local charities working for those causes. He recommended contacting Sussex Community Foundation as an expert local grant-maker and we were delighted to help!
More information on how to apply before our next deadline – Friday 3rd May – is on our Grants page.
