the Community Foundation for the people of Kirklees.

Why invest in your local community?

As a donor it is easy to feel overwhelmed by choice. No matter how much you have to donate, it is simply not possible to help every cause out there. So how do you choose?

There are hundreds of charities all worthy of your support, and it is certainly a difficult, if not impossible, task to determine which groups are more worthy than others. However, with our expert local knowledge, we can advise and help you set-up a fund to help local charities and community groups.

One Community is managed by local people and makes grants to local causes, unless you specify otherwise. You can be confident that your money will only go to support charities and voluntary groups in Kirklees.

Regardless of the size of your donation, giving locally can make a real difference. On the following pages, two of our donors, Judith Charlesworth and Ken Davy explain what motivated them to invest in the local community.
