How you can help

Legacy

In business the one constant is that things never stay the same for long. Many successful entrepreneurs in our area come to the decision that it’s time to take things a little easier and decide to sell their business. It would be a shame to think that the name and brand reputation that was so hard won might simply disappear in a relatively short time. Working with TVCF gives the opportunity to build in a legacy, maybe as part of your Capital Gains Tax strategy, where the company can set up a fund to provide community benefit for years to come, in the name of the company that you worked so hard to make a success. Let us maintain and protect the name of your company in perpetuity by providing real help to the community you served throughout your business life.

​​​​Donation for immediate impact

More and more we are finding that donors wish to make a difference whilst they are able to enjoy seeing the impact their giving has made. We are able to offer a flow through option where what you give flows straight out to provide benefit to the causes that you wish to support. This approach suits new and successful businesses who are wishing to give something back in a fast moving and ever changing environment, offering absolute flexibility to meet the needs of cash flow forecasting. It offers a very effective approach to profile raising for a dynamic and growing company.

​​​​Support activity you are passionate about

The Tees Valley is filled with fantastic activities delivered by passionate and talented people, be it sports, the arts or simply offering a helping hand to those less fortunate living amongst us. We are able to offer a made to measure process where a donor can specify exactly what type of activity they wish to support, we then market the opportunity to the relevant sectors within the area, invite applications and carry out the appropriate level of due diligence to ensure any grant is safely and effectively used, at all times protecting the interest of the donor.

Give money to make help change happen immediately

Here at Tees Valley Community Foundation we have spent over 25 years building a permanent endowment fund, currently valued at over £14,000,000 to provide support for our community now and forever into the future. This is an extremely effective model for giving but may not suit everyone in a world where speed and immediate impact are of increasing importance. With this in mind we are able to provide an instant impact approach to giving where what comes in goes out to help in the here and now. We refer to this type of giving as “flow through”.

​​​​Will gift

Following the loss of a family member or close friend, the option for making a charitable donation to support the area in which that person lived, loved and worked can be a complex and daunting prospect. TVCF offers an understanding approach to meeting the needs of family members and executors who are wishing to make a responsible and effective legacy gift. We are able to advise on the most efficient and impactful way to meet your needs and that of the deceased.

​​​​Give something back

In all our lives we reach certain milestones, and sometimes it seems right to mark these points with something relevant. It may be a change in life - retirement, a windfall, an inheritance - or it may be an event that you wish to mark - a birth, a marriage or a bereavement - all of these make us reflect on what has gone before. It is at these times we often wish to give something back, or maybe even “pay it forward”. We are here to help you make such important decisions and to make sure any gift you wish to share gets to where it will do most help whist meeting your needs.

​​​Donate to TVCF Fund

Although our focus is on providing a bespoke service to our donors, it may be that you simply want to raise some money and want to help the community in and around the Tees Valley. We are always delighted to receive donations to help us with our work, so if you are looking for a great cause to raise money for, and after all what can be greater than helping your own community, we would be delighted to receive any donation and to keep you fully informed as to how your generosity has helped.
