The Kingsbridge Healthcare Group is delighted to announce the launch of a new charitable arm of the Group – the Kingsbridge Foundation. The Foundation hopes to raise money for the community through charitable work, fundraising and local initiatives.
The Group has made an initial contribution of £50,000 to get the fund started. The Community Fund NI have contributed an additional £5,000. Proceeds from our car park at the Kingshall will also be donated to the fund.
Kingsbridge Healthcare Group is committed to further donations to the fund on an ongoing basis and it is hoped the fund will also be supplemented by fund-raising events organised by staff.
Each year we will work with the Community Foundation NI to choose certain charities and community initiatives to support; including those initiatives proposed by the Advisory Board.
No funds will be allocated without the consent of the Advisory Board, who will have overarching authority on deciding where funds go. Recipients of the funds from our foundation will be vetted by the Community Fund NI to ensure proper governance is in place. Funding is NOT ring-fenced specifically to healthcare causes which gives the Advisory Board a broader scope of good causes to support.
Because the governance framework needs to be tight; funds from the Foundation are not permitted to go to individuals per se; unless channelled via a Charity
We hope to officially launch the Kingsbridge Foundation in January 2022 and be announcing then, how you can apply for funding. For further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
