The High Sheriff Fund
The High Sheriff Fund was started by Lord Frances Stafford to enable grants to be given to local community groups within the county of Staffordshire.
As with his predecessor, Richard Haszard, the current High Sheriff, Ian Dudson CBE, DL, is continuing this tradition.

Any money raised for the High Sheriff Fund is placed into an endowment fund, which is then invested. Each year the interest from the fund is given away as a small grants programme to community groups based in Staffordshire who are working in their community.
The current High Sheriff, Ian Dudson CBE, DL, is walking the canals of Staffordshire, along with volunteers, to raise money through donations and sponsorship.

What success will look like
Community groups who are awarded a grant from the High Sheriff Fund are given the opportunity to partake in publicity.
Smaller community groups will thrive, having a source of funding available to them. It avoids them having to compete with larger national and regional charities for funding.
All investments are made under Charity commission guidelines. The fund will be around forever, it can never be dissolved.
Each High Sheriff is involved in making the decisions as to which projects are supported, backed by the extensive local knowledge of the Staffordshire Community Foundation.
