Welcome To The Award Winning Community Foundation for Calderdale
Our mission is "To improve the lives of people in Calderdale by raising and distributing funds, using our knowledge of local communities and working with others to target actions that will make the most positive difference". The Community Foundation for Calderdale is, in effect, a local charity for local charities. We work with our partners (individuals, families, businesses and other organisations) to create charitable funds which we then manage to support the community causes we all care about. With the help and generosity of hundreds of local partners we have created a permanent endowment of more than £8m. The income generated by that endowment helps the people of Calderdale today and will continue to do so tomorrow and for generations to come.
With platforms such as Crowd Funder launching more than 3000 projects and raising over £1,000,000, charities cannot afford to ignore innovative method of fundraising.
New technology means charities of any size can reach new audiences quicker than ever before, campaigns can be more impactful, and enable small charities to invoke a philanthropic response from people across the world.
The event is packed full of inspiring speakers view the timetable here & none more so than our key speaker Phil Packer MBE who dedicates all his time and energy to enthusing and supporting young people who face adversity through his charitable organisation the British Inspirational Trust (BRIT)and from his direct support to 7 other charities. In the course of his work post-spinal cord injury, Phil has raised millions and inspired millions. He is a non-paid CEO and has been the recipient of Fundraiser of the Year at the Pride of Britain Awards and the Helen Rollason Award at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
