Love Norfolk

Build stronger communities from the ground up through local places, spaces and services. Help local people work together to solve local problems and take action to provide the care, opportunities and facilities people need most.

Norfolk is a place that inspires people to set down strong roots and care deeply about the issues facing their community. For most of us, Norfolk is our home. Our families are here, our friends are here; our lives are here.

Love Norfolk focuses on the uniqueness of our identity, our sense of community, and the many individuals, charities, businesses and organisations that make Norfolk, in our eyes, world class. Investing in the big ideas that build capacity in Norfolk charities, enabling growth and building long term sustainability to safeguard our essential community services, we are committed to giving local people what they need to make their communities thrive.

“Norfolk Community Foundation is invaluable, supporting grassroot small charities like ourselves. Known as a ‘can do’ evolving project we often turn to the Foundation when new issues and needs arise and they often meets these new programmes with support on a quick basis before situations worsen.”

Building communities from the ground up

Love Norfolk aims to support strategic initiatives with the potential to deliver significant and long term impact by piloting new ways of working, or extending the reach and quality of proven local services.

We work with local charities and communities to help them solve local problems, often starting the spark that grows into transformational projects.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!If you are a UK taxpayer, add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Norfolk Community Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Norfolk Community Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the “Yes” box, I agree I would like Norfolk Community Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Norfolk Community Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Norfolk Community Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we’re entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
