Local Giving


Tees Valley Community Foundation is registered with Localgiving.com who's mission is to enable philanthropic giving to small local charities and community groups in the UK. 

Localgiving.com lets you find and donate to local charities and community groups, even those too small to be registered with the Charity Commission. It provides charities and community groups with a webpage and provides a facility for online donations.  Each charitable organisation that appears on Localgiving.com has been validated by either their local Community Foundation or the Community Foundation Network in a process approved by the Charity Commission. This process ensures that you can feel confident that the donations you make will be awarded to bona fide trustworthy charitable and voluntary organisations. 

When you give to your favourite local charity on Localgiving.com, 93% of your actual donation goes directly to the charity.  In addition, if you are a taxpayer and qualify for Gift Aid, and you donate £10, the government will add Gift Aid of £2.50 to the donation. After Localgiving.com and PayPal commissions, that means the charity of your choice receives £11.41 from your £10 donation.

If you are not eligible for Gift Aid, your charity will receive £9.06 of your £10 donation, if this is the case it may be more beneficial to make your donation directly to your nominated charity.

You can donate to Tees Valley Community Foundation via our Localgiving.com page by clicking on the link below and your donation will be added to our general revenue fund which will be used to support worthy causes within the Tees Valley.
