Having worked as a fundraiser in the City for more than 25 years I was well aware of the great work undertaken by the Foundation.
Through the Coventry City of Culture Trust, I have come to know the work of the Foundation better: When we wanted to establish funds so that potential partners could trial ideas and build their skills set, I suggested we ask the Foundation to manage the pot. This has worked incredibly well.
Giving grants in a fair, even handed and transparent way is essential, yet not a straightforward undertaking. The expertise of the Foundation has helped us to plan our giving; the application process and the reporting mechanisms.
I would wholeheartedly recommend the Foundation and its team.
