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 support the 46 charities.  From charities supporting survivors of domestic abuse to local projects giving children a better start in life, all the 45 charities linked to the Bridges Challenge are so grateful to you for your support. 

Donate and support the amazing work of local causes on Bristol Giving Day

We’ll make sure that each of the 45 Bristol causes linked to a bridge in the Bridges Challenge will receive an equal share of the money you raise. For every £1 you donate, 10p will be retained by Quartet Community Foundation to help pay for our costs, particularly helping a little with the costs of putting on Bristol Giving Day and the Bridges Challenge.  Quartet is a charity too (Registered Charity Number 1080418) so 100% of your donation goes to charity.  Thanks to your support wherever people in our area are struggling to have a fair chance of a good life, Quartet Community Foundation will be there for them.  


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 permanent funds at Quartet mean 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.
