We are proud to support local charities

21st January 2015

We have recently become members of the Northamptonshire Community Foundation N100 which, as their website says “is a county giving circle and networking ‘club’ for like-minded companies and individuals who care about their area, believe that charity begins at home and want to work collaboratively to give something back.”

The Northamptonshire Community Foundation (NCF) is one of 57 community foundations across the UK.  Launched in 2002 the NCF has invested over £7 million across Northamptonshire by supporting over 2,500 charitable projects.

Fortitude has previously supported selected local charities that have approached us directly but we were particularly drawn to N100 because the Trustees can demonstrate a process by which projects are selected, the way in which each grant has been used and the resulting benefits.Northants Community Foundation

Neil said “The Fortitude team is delighted to be part of the N100 giving circle.  We are looking forward to working with the Northamptonshire Community Foundation, who will ensure that our donation will be managed effectively to support projects within our community.”

So, if you were wondering why we don’t send Christmas cards (and by the way thank you for all your Christmas cards and greetings) we hope that you will understand our preference to direct the money to those who are less fortunate in our local community.
