Ways to give

The pages in this section give information about all the different ways you can give back to your local community, with the help of County Durham Community Foundation. No matter what your budget, or your circumstances, we can help you to make a real difference!

One of the most popular options is to create a named fund - it's the perfect alternative to setting up a charitable trust, and depending on the type of fund, it doesn't always mean donating a large sum upfront. The Foundation is proud to manage almost 200 funds on behalf of local companies, families, individuals, trusts and public bodies, covering a wide range of charitable interests.

Other ways to support your local community include leaving a gift in your Will, or simply making a general donation to County Durham Community Foundation.

If you would like to speak to someone at the Foundation about ways to give, please contact our Chief Executive, Barbara Gubbins:
