Corporate Giving

"100% of donors who responded to our survey recommend working with Wiltshire Community Foundation."

The best advice is given by the most experienced professional teams.  Wiltshire Community Foundation's specialist knowledge of the charitable sector and need in their local area makes them a key member of the best team you can have.

Wiltshire Community Foundation can share ideas and examples of philanthropy that showcase a more targeted and knowledgeable approach to charitable giving - helping businesses consider how and when they may best give their money.

Each company we work with has access to our extensive local knowledge, advice on how to structure their CSR programmes and what works and what doesn't.  We have enjoyed long lasting relationships with our corporate donors.  Many help the foundation by providing interesting venues, recommending us to their peers, sponsoring our events and providing volunteers to support our work.

"Working with Wiltshire Community Foundation has enabled us to become part of a unique and highly effective model for impactful community investment.  The partnership gives us the confidence we need that our fund is making a real difference." Malcolm Gregory, Royds Withy King

At law firm Royds Withy King, building strong relationships with local communities and making a positive impact is central to staff's everyday working lives.  Wiltshire Community Foundation is a key partner to help the firm provide support in a strategic and sustainable way.
