About Us

Home » About Us

We champion local giving, building partnerships with like-minded individuals and organisations who also want their local communities to thrive.

Drawing on our combined knowledge and expertise, we match those who want to make a difference with those who have a specific challenge to overcome.

Working closely with key stakeholders to ensure a thorough understanding of need, we have an in-depth knowledge of community issues across Shropshire, meaning we can offer expert advice and support to donors – enabling them to invest in communities and causes where funding is most needed and where their generosity will have greatest impact

We do not compete with local charities, but instead act as a philanthropic hub to direct funds to them. We are cause neutral and provide an informed and professional channel for anyone looking to give within Shropshire.

Our vision

United, thriving communities across Shropshire where the people are happy, healthy, and fulfilled.

Our mission

Through philanthropy, to build a long-term source of sustainable, strategic grant funding for the good of those communities and people most in need across Shropshire.
