Leave a gift in your Will

    Cornwall Community Foundation has supported people and communities in Cornwall and The Isles of Scilly for 20 years.  In that time, we have granted more than £13 million to 6000 community groups working to improve lives in their area. But with your generosity in leaving a gift to the Foundation in your Will, we could help many more people.

    Since 2003, we’ve supported every town and parish in Cornwall with carefully targeted grants changing the lives of people who would otherwise struggle.

    We are helping:

    • people in crisis
    • people struggling with housing
    • disabled people
    • older people who are isolated
    • young people needing a new start and
    • community hubs providing vital local services.

    A gift to Cornwall Community Foundation in your Will means we can continue to support local people and communities, long into the future.

    Giving back to communities through the Foundation means you can choose how you support people in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.  For example, you could:

    • support a particular cause close to your heart or people in a local area
    • allow us to allocate your gift according to the most pressing current needs
    • choose to add to one of our themed funds
    • start a fund that will develop your own unique charitable interests, or
    • establish a named fund ensuring your or your loved one’s name will live on, as year after year your fund supports people in Cornwall.

    You don’t have to be wealthy to leave a gift in your Will, nothing could be further from the truth, everyone can leave something as it costs you nothing today, but makes a world of difference for someone tomorrow. So, after taking care of your family and friends, you’ll be amazed at what one lasting gift, no matter how big or small, can do.
