Enabling Giving. Putting Generosity to Work.
We want to see a culture of giving at the heart of life in Derbyshire, helping to create a county where communities are strong, civil society is valued, and all individuals have the opportunity to fulfil their potential and be treated fairly and with respect.
To build a multi-purpose endowment that provides a growing and sustainable source of funding that can meet the needs of today and anticipated and unexpected future needs.
To grow philanthropy in Derbyshire by enabling anyone to be a philanthropist; in life, through a legacy, establishing a named fund or collective giving.
To make grants creatively and effectively for both our grant recipients and funders, creating the bridge between people who care about and can give to their local community and the wide range of grassroots groups and charities that work to tackle disadvantage, address need & improve the quality of life in our county.
We are a registered charity and company limited by guarantee that is governed by a board of trustees made up of representatives from Derbyshire’s business, public and voluntary sectors.
