The Foundation runs a Volunteer Matching Programme which connects skilled volunteers from professional backgrounds to charities who would benefit from their skills. We welcome volunteers who want to provide pro bono advice or support to charities, as well as people interested in joining boards and committees to help voluntary organisations develop at a strategic level.
The Foundation runs various grants programmes which fund Bailiwick voluntary organisations:
1) The GCF Grants Programme provides substantial grants to local voluntary organisations so that significant challenges or needs within the Bailiwick can be addressed.
2) The Foundation acts on behalf of the Pargiter Trust to distribute funds to charitable and voluntary organisations working with disadvantaged older people in the Bailiwick. Areas supported are improving health and well being; improving access to facilities, advice and training; and overcoming problems.
3) The Foundation is managing the administration of the grants process of the John Ramplin Charitable Trust, which aims to donate to Guernsey registered charities to enhance the health and wellbeing of a wide section of the Bailiwick community.
The majority of grants will be directed towards charities that assist low income families, children, older people, people affected by disability or ill-health, community projects and medical research.
