It's not all about the money....

Ways to Give

How can I make a difference?

The most traditional and straightforward way to support our efforts is to make a donation of cash to help us help others working across our community - you can do this in a number of ways and to suit all pockets.

The fundamental aim of a Community Foundation is to build a fund that will help our community now and on into the future - in perpetuity. Tees Valley Community Foundation has built a fund of over £14,000,000, which is permanently invested to provide income for us to distribute, now and forever. We want to continue to build this fund, to reach £20,000,000 and beyond.
