Suffolk Community Foundation
Suffolk Community Foundation is your community foundation, created through the generosity of local people to support charities and community groups in Suffolk, from which we all benefit by improving the quality of life for everyone in Suffolk.
We are here to connect local people who care passionately about Suffolk with grassroots causes that really make a difference to our local communities. As an independent grant-maker, we support local charities and community groups who are tackling disadvantage and addressing real needs at a community level in whatever form it takes, targeting our grants to where the needs are greatest.
Established in 2005, we have already given away £15 million in grants to help local people find local solutions to community needs from the grassroots up across Suffolk.
We manage charitable funds donated by individuals and organisations, building endowment funds to ensure a future of sustainable grantmaking, and acting as the vital link between local donors and local needs.
Suffolk Dog Day is run entirely by a dedicated committee and over 100 volunteers. All proceeds go to help support our work. Over the last nine years Suffolk Dog Day has raised over £400,000 to make a real difference to those most in need in Suffolk.
This year’s committee are:
- Clare Burgess
- Richard Cooper
- Tim Holder
- Bill Mayne
- Peter Newnham
- Adrian Rawlinson
- Laura Ripman
- Cindy de la Rue
- Mona Sheepshanks
