Make a general donation

If you would like to support your local community but are not exactly sure how you would like your money to be used then you could consider making a general donation to County Durham Community Foundation. We give out about £2 million each year in grants to local good causes in County Durham and Darlington. All general donations made to us help to support the running of our organisation and the work we do for local people in need.

Make a one-off donation
Either by sending a cheque directly to us or by donation online through JustGiving

Set up a Direct Debit
Make a small contribution to our work each month by completing our Direct Debit form or through JustGiving

Payroll Giving
Make a tax-free monthly contribution to your community directly from your pay. Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p. Contact us to find out more about Payroll Giving.
