We are very grateful to have recently been successful in our bid for a grant from the Veteran’s Foundation. This grant has enabled us to create our new look web site and have a dedicated phone number, as well as attend many events in order to reach more families and grow awareness of our CIC and what we do, with much more to come. It has truly been a lifesaver for our small, but impactful CIC.
The Veteran’s Foundation supports many small /medium size charities and not for profit organisations in the military community and their mission is:
“The Veterans' Foundation has been set up to help fund charities and other charitable organisations that are helping serving and former members of the Armed Forces, and their dependants, who are in need.”
“The Veterans' Foundation raises its money through the Veterans’ Lottery and donations. Since inception in July 2016, it has given over £11 million through over 600 grants to over 300 unique organisations, many of them small to medium-sized and very worthwhile charities, which are helping members of the Armed Forces community who are in need. Forecasts indicate the Veterans’ Foundation will make grants totalling £4.4 million this financial year. The charities and other organisations we have helped include those tackling the challenges of mental and physical injuries, homelessness, unemployment, children’s loss of parents while serving and remembrance. We encourage you to spread the word.”
