Guernsey Community Foundation - Grants

We work with different types of donors distributing funds on their behalf to specific causes or, through our grants programme, to the areas of greatest need.

Total grant expenditure

Over £1 million has been awarded to date through our grants programmes.

Strategic Grants Programme

Our Strategic Grants Programme provides substantial grants to improve the way a voluntary organisation operates or delivers its services so that it can better meet the needs of the community or its beneficiaries.

Examples of areas supported include: formation of strategy; leadership and management; staffing and volunteers; infrastructure; training; effective fundraising; communications; working with other organisations to maximise the use of available resources.

Pargiter Trust Funding

We act on behalf of the Pargiter Trust to distribute funds to charitable and voluntary organisations working with disadvantaged older people in the Bailiwick. Areas supported are:

Improving health and well being - reducing isolation, providing hot meals and refreshments and helping older people to stay active through sports, arts, recreation, social clubs and volunteering;

Improving access to facilities, advice and training - supporting projects providing respite for carers, supporting Good Neighbourhood and befriending schemes and improving access to information and IT for older people, particularly where this involves intergenerational work;

Overcoming problems - helping older people who are experiencing difficult circumstances due to an illness, injury, disability, bereavement or financial difficulty.

The Guernsey Community Foundation celebrates helping our voluntary sector for over five years.

Since the Guernsey Community Foundation was set up 5 years ago the way in which we allocate money to good causes here in the Bailiwick has changed significantly. This short summary video, produced on our 5th Anniversary, showcases just some of the organisations that we have supported through our Strategic Grants Programme and discusses the Foundation’s work.
