High Sheriff Fund
The High Sheriff of Worcestershire’s Fund aims to encourage charitable donations which will be distributed to a number of selected local charities through Worcestershire’s charitable hub Worcestershire Community Foundation (WCF).
WCF is a conduit of support and funding for so many different charities and volunteer organisations across the whole county - meaning vital funds can be distributed where they are needed most. This is particularly true during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Money raised by the National Emergencies Trust is channelled through the county foundations.
As at 15th June 2020 the Worcestershire Community Foundation has already paid out 129 grants totalling £375,000 to a wide range of charities and organisations across the whole county.
Worcestershire Community Foundation was founded in 2003 and is a registered charity serving the communities of Worcestershire. Part of a national network of 46 local community foundations across the UK, WCF is a specialist charitable hub that drives philanthropy across Worcestershire, bringing together philanthropic donors, businesses and grant giving bodies with local causes in areas of the community that are most in need. WCF often supports charities and voluntary organisations across the County who don’t necessarily have the capacity to organise major fundraising campaigns themselves.
