Our aim at Kent Community Foundation ...
...is to inspire people to give locally in order to create stronger communities and support people in Kent and Medway to overcome disadvantage and meet local need. Nearly three quarters of the legacies left to charity each year go to organisations turning over more than £10million. Rather than being a drop in the ocean, your gift could be a lifesaver to our local Kent community groups, many of which are volunteer-led. After making provision for your loved ones, perhaps you would consider helping redress the balance and benefitting your community by remembering Kent Community Foundation in your will.
To make a general gift to KCF to support our core work as a registered charity, simply name Kent Community Foundation (registered charity no. 1084361) as a beneficiary in your will.
We also offer a Charitable Legacy Service which offers you the opportunity to tailor-make your legacy, and tell us exactly how you wish your legacy to be put to best use in your local community. It is very simple and straightforward. Use the links above to find out more.
Our thanks to Gullands Solicitors, whose chairman is a trustee of Kent Community Foundation, for their pro bono legal advice on the wording of wills and codicils.
If you have any questions, or would like to discuss setting up a named legacy fund, please contact our Development Team by email or on 01303 814 500. All discussions are without obligation and will remain confidential.
Development of this project has been made possible by a grant from the Kent Transforming Local Infrastructure project. This has been funded by the Cabinet Office and delivered through Big Fund, the non-lottery funding arm of the Big Lottery Fund. Transforming Local Infrastructure is providing better support for front-line civil society organisations by transforming local infrastructure services.
