Where your money goes

So many people in Bristol need your help to have a fair chance of a good life. The money you raise on Bristol Giving Day will make a world of difference to them.

You have four options for where the money you raise on Bristol Giving Day can go.

 

Donate to the Bristol Giving Day Fund

The Bristol Giving Day Fund will give grants to local charities and community groups that help disadvantaged people across Bristol.  From women’s refuges to giving inner city kids their first day in the countryside… from supporting people with mental health problems to breaking down isolation for older people… from supporting people struggling with debt to giving care leavers the leg up they need.  Wherever people are struggling to have a fair chance of a good life, with your help Quartet Community Foundation will be there for them.  

 

Donate to the HPC Bristol Community Fund

Set up by EDF Energy and colleagues working on the Hinkley Point C project, this fund helps local voluntary and community groups and organisations that support disadvantaged young people through offering education, training and volunteering opportunities or encouraging disadvantaged young people to make a positive contribution to society.  If you’re part of the HPC Project, choose this option and grow the Fund so we can help more young people.  

 

Donate to the Bristol City Funds

The Bristol City Funds are brand new!  They are the way for people and organisations that care about Bristol to donate to make Bristol a more equal and sustainable place to live.  Money donated on Bristol Giving Day will go towards the ‘No Child Goes Hungry’ campaign which is raising funds to ensure every child in Bristol has enough good food to keep them healthy and to help them grow.  The fund also aim to reduce the proportion of children suffering from food poverty in Bristol by addressing the causes of poverty.  

 

A local cause of your own choice

If you know a local good cause, you can donate the money you raise directly to them.  Please make sure you choose a small and local charity – the big charities have lots of other chances to ask for your help and Bristol Giving Day is the unique opportunity for projects without marketing or fundraising teams to get your support!

 

How we can help

There’s no organisation like Quartet Community Foundation in the West of England!  For more than 30 years we’ve been finding small charities and community groups that do amazing work – often on a shoestring – and enabling people who care about our area to give financial support to these amazing projects.  We check the projects thoroughly before giving out any grants to make sure they will really make a difference to their local community.  Our knowledge of how to make giving effective and our rigorous due diligence processes take the risk out of giving and make philanthropy truly inspiring.  Check out the stories on our website and thank you so much for your support!

 

Your donation

We encourage tax-efficient donations, e.g. using Gift Aid. This means for every £100 donated we can claim back £25 at no extra cost to you.  

 

 

Stories of changed lives and impacted communities

We’re so proud of the work that we do. Because of you, our endowment at Quartet means we’re able to award a thousand grants every year. We have the privilege of making a difference to thousands of people in our local communities, changing lives today, tomorrow and forever. Here are some of the stories of lives we have touched through our work with donors to inspire philanthropy and on the front-line addressing social needs.

Offering sanctuary to traumatised individuals

Arriving in a new city, in a new country, and learning a new language are just three of the challenges Siddiq and Sabir faced when they arrived in Bristol. A grant we made to Bristol Hospitality Network for £14,500 through a New Beginnings grant helped them provide welcome centres for Siddiq, Sabir and their fellow asylum seekers and refugees in Bristol.

Helping older people in crisis

Thanks to a grant through us Age UK Bristol were able to offer this local older person some support to get through a crisis period.
