For those who have always wanted to make a real difference to their community but are not sure where to start, we have launched an innovative new way of giving. Becoming a ‘Friend of Norfolk’ encourages everyone to make a real difference to their local community by getting involved in a way that suits them.

As a Friend of Norfolk, members can decide to offer their money and/or time to help others. Friends contribute the amount they are happy to give, enabling anyone who wishes to give back to Norfolk to do so, without the constraints of rigid membership fees. They benefit from regular communications providing updates on how their support is making a difference locally, and receive a warm welcome at our events throughout the year.

Friends’ joint giving can make a greater impact to lives in Norfolk than would have been possible with smaller contributions. From supporting charities who work with vulnerable people, to helping individuals and maintaining important community spaces, Friends can be confident that their contribution will make a significant impact locally. Norfolk Community Foundation has an unrivalled knowledge of local needs, and of the local charities who work to make a difference, which ensures that Friends’ contributions are targeted where the need is greatest.
