  • Impact

    Impact

    Through grant-making and supporting those who most need help in the winter months County Durham Community Foundation aims to benefit many elderly and vulnerable people in 2017/18

    Risk

    The main risk would be if insufficient people donate to the campaign. We have regular donors to target for donations and a social media and marketing plan to increase awareness of the campaign

    Reporting

    Donors will receive a report at the end of the financial year detailing the total raised and the grants made to the targeted groups and individuals
