Charitable Trusts and Foundations

We recognise that for many trustees there is a real sense of pride and honour in accomplishing the wishes and intentions of the founder or benefactor, and we would never wish to undermine the satisfaction and joy that fulfilling this responsibility can bring.

But we also know that there are many reasons why a charitable trust might struggle to deliver its charitable objectives, despite the best efforts and hard work of the trustees.

Let Us Help

We can provide a range of solutions from managing the funds within the Trust, assisting with grant making to taking over a trust completely.  Our professional skills and local expertise means that we can identify current social need and often find beneficiaries and causes that provide the twenty first century equivalent of the issues the original trust was set up to tackle, securing funding for the long-term benefit of local communities, just as was originally intended. We even have a number of place-based funds, allowing your Trust to be dedicated to a particular town or place in Cheshire and Warrington.

“With 4,000 charities registered in the Cheshire/Warrington region, I didn’t know where to start with our grant-giving, but we have learned we can trust the knowledge and expertise of Cheshire Community Foundation to apply the money exactly where it’s needed, and that it is used in the most effective possible way”.
