“We Rise by Lifting Others” – Robert Ingersoll

Every day, charitable foundations and trusts around the world are supporting NGOs, charities, and community organizations to deliver services and facilities to those who could use a helping hand. Whether these funding bodies are headed up by super-wealthy philanthropists or businesses that take corporate social responsibility seriously – their money is always desperately needed to help make society a better place in which to live.

Most importantly, we’ll be highlighting what kind of projects these foundations and trusts have lent their support to, and offer fundraising news and tips – in the hope this will help charitable projects access and secure the money they so crucially need.
