Over the last 20 years thanks to generous contributions from individuals and local businesses Devon Community Foundation has distributed nearly £11 million to over 3,600 voluntary, community and social enterprises across the county, helping to support thousands of people in need each and every year.
Quality accredited by UK Community Foundations and formally acknowledged and recognised by the Charity Commission for England and Wales, the role Devon Community Foundation plays is simple:
Funding…we invest in great ideas and unsung heroes, helping them to do what they do best: make a real difference to the lives of local people
Philanthropy…. we are a catalyst for giving, inspiring local philanthropy for individuals, families and businesses, helping to change lives today, tomorrow and forever
Nurturing Communities… we are the champion of local communities and all those who contribute to helping those communities thrive
We are sponsoring the Corporate Social Responsibility Award to celebrate the companies embedded in their local communities and committed to embracing ethical working in everything they do. From the way they conduct their business, to considering their social, economic and environmental impact. We are delighted to recognise the importance of corporate social responsibility and the benefits to communities, staff and clients.
