The Faith & Belief Forum (F&BF) are delighted to announce that we have been generously awarded £30,000 by the Garfield Weston Foundation towards the next phase of our organisational development against an unprecedented context. This partnership and support will enable F&BF to Create, Update and Evolve our practices.
The Garfield Weston Foundation is a family-founded, charitable grant-making foundation, which supports a wide range of causes across the UK, donating over £80 million annually. It was established in 1958 by the Weston family and is one of the largest and most respected charitable institutions in the UK which has donated over £1 billion in total. The Trustees are descendants of the founder and the Weston family continues to take a highly active and hands-on approach.
The foundation supports a variety of charitable activities in fields as diverse as the arts, education, youth, faith, community, among many others.
This grant will go towards supporting the overall organisational development of the Faith & Belief Forum: creating new ways in which individuals can engage with the organisation and vice versa; updating our systems to better match the evolving landscape (e.g. investing in IT, paperless office system, and digital outreach etc.); evolving to be more responsive to the context we find ourselves in whilst being confident in applying tried and tested methods to new landscapes and audiences.
This grant will therefore support F&BF to grow as an organisation and remain responsive to the needs of our time.
As many organisations find themselves in unprecedented and challenging times, the need to revaluate and reassess as an organisation is key and we are extremely grateful to Garfield Weston for their support in helping us to do this.
