A fund for the Blackdown Hills
The Blackdown Hills Countryside Fund provides a channel through which individuals, families, companies or charitable trusts can support the Blackdown Hills landscape, pooling donations for greater impact.
Charitable and well managed
The Fund is held by Devon Community Foundation, a registered charity that works throughout Devon to help groups make a real, lasting difference to local lives. All donations to the fund will be spent within the Blackdown Hills on projects that support both local communities and the natural beauty of the area†.
The fund intends to provide a long-term source of financial support for projects in the Blackdown Hills. Your donation will help build an investment that will generate income for grant making in perpetuity.
Maximising the impact of your donation
If you are a UK tax payer we may also be able to claim gift aid and so for every £1 you donate up to £1.75 will be added to the fund.
†The Blackdown Hills Countryside Fund is held by Devon Community Foundation, registered charity 1057923. The Trustees of the Foundation will retain 1.5% of the total value of the Fund each year as a contribution towards management and operating costs. Until the Fund exceeds £25,000, the income arising from investments will be added to the fund. Once the Fund exceeds £25,000, the income arising from investments will be distributed annually as grants. Further donations can either be added to the endowed fund or used for immediate grant making. Please contact Devon Community Foundation if you have any queries.
