We are proud to be one of the five founding investors of the new Heart of Bucks “Community Investor Fund”, which was launched on 4th November 2020. The fund enables businesses to support the community where they work, helping the Buckinghamshire organisations, community groups and charities that need support following a turbulent year.
Heart of Bucks have established the fund to make charitable giving for businesses like ours, straightforward and simple. Becoming a Community Investor ensures every donation we make is directed towards where it is needed most, and of course giving back to our local community in Buckinghamshire. The fund is divided into money that can be used for immediate charitable grants, or invested to help those organisations and charities that need help longer-term.
Commenting on the Community Investor Fund, CEO Gerard O’Keeffe said, “We are delighted to support this new fund as a founder member, working with other local businesses, through Heart of Bucks, to support voluntary and not-for-profit organisations in our area to continue to do great work in these most difficult times”.
Henry Allmand, CEO of Heart of Bucks reflected, “Caring businesses like these are not only crucial to the county’s economic success and prosperity, but also the wellbeing of so many of our residents through their charitable activities”.
Buckinghamshire Building Society remain committed to supporting the local community throughout this challenging time. To find out more about the Community Investor Fund, visit the Heart of Bucks website.
