Community & Civic

Projects that reinvigorate communities and create facilities that help individuals to flourish, are the lifeblood of cities, towns and villages across the UK.

Clients within the Community and Civic sector probably make up the broadest spread of all the charities we work with; from small village community centres striving to improve their facilities for local people, to local authorities planning multi-million pound developments of civic facilities such as town halls and libraries. We also work with housing associations gaining charitable status to meet the needs of a struggling community, as well as homelessness projects and child welfare charities with urgent fundraising campaigns. So, whether you’re an animal welfare charity needing a new fundraising strategy to remain sustainable, or a Livery Company building endowments through regular giving and legacy programmes to celebrate major anniversaries, professional support from the team at Gifted can make all the difference to your chances of success.

Regardless of your cause, our Directors understand the importance of initiatives that underpin society, and we encourage our whole team to become involved in projects they feel personally inspired by.
