Kent Community Foundation (KCF) welcomes donations from individuals or families so that you can make a real difference in your community.
We will work with you to maximise the impact of your local giving in the areas and causes you feel most passionate about: from helping young carers to tackling poverty or reducing re-offending. We offer a tailored service, using our local knowledge and networks to help individual philanthropists support fantastic causes across Kent and Medway, to those often operating below the radar at the grassroots, where a modest sum of money can make a huge difference.
Four ways in which you can give to the Foundation:
- Set up a named fund: Start a charitable fund at the Foundation which matches your wishes and interests.
- Donate to our pooled funds: Give with people who share your interests and make a bigger difference.
- Leave a legacy. After making provision for your loved ones, a gift in your will is a wonderful way of remembering the local community beyond your lifetime.
- Donate more generally to the work of the foundation
The Jessel family have enjoyed the challenge of choosing organisations to support. The information provided by KCF is extremely helpful especially when there are photographs of the groups – seeing the people who may directly benefit from your grant is really inspirational as you can imagine the work going on during the year.Vicki Jessel, The Hornbeam Charitable Fund
We are looking forward to continuing our funding meetings – there is always a robust discussion and as our children grow and experience more of the outside world they are becoming more attuned to the needs of others; a really positive outcome from our journey in philanthropy
