Charities are being invited to take part in a valuable piece of research to help the Guernsey Community Foundation better understand their needs particularly in relation to governance, and administrative and accounting requirements.
The new online survey, which will be sent to nearly 300 local charities, and which should not take long to complete, builds on work already carried out by the Foundation’s Charity Support Centre.
Centre Manager Lois Falla, who is leading this research, said:
“The survey data will help us identify what help is really needed and, crucially, work out how the Foundation might provide that help.”
Charities who would like extra support in completing the survey can arrange to meet Mrs Falla.
The Foundation’s Chief Executive, Jim Roberts, said:
“The Foundation aims to promote philanthropy and improve the quality of life in the Bailiwick. One of the main ways in which we can make a difference is by supporting charities and not-for-profits. In recent years we’ve invested in providing practical support to the third sector. This survey will help us direct that support and maximise its impact.”
Respondents have until Wednesday 6 October to complete the survey.
The results of the survey will be made available in due course.
