Do your bit and CFFC will double it


Community Foundation for Calderdale will match fund all your donations to the #MakeItStop campaign - to tackle the growing problem of social isolation felt by our older people.

CFFC has announced it will match fund all of your donations, including gift aid – no matter how large or small from the initial £25,000 funding, with the hope of making the money grow through a community fundraising effort.

The Foundation is the first Community Foundation in the UK to offer pound for pound match funding on donations of any amount.

Steve Duncan, CEO of the Community Foundation, said: “Every penny raised in Calderdale will stay in Calderdale and help our community.

“Every penny will be spent helping the most vulnerable. Donations will be used in a variety of ways including: helping pay fuel bills; insulating homes; providing hot meals; supporting day centres; providing blankets and much more.

“I hope Calderdale folk will dig deep to help address loneliness.

“If you would like to help us tackle loneliness and social deprivation in Calderdale please donate via where all donations will be matched by us.”
