A growth spurt of a year We’ve entered a new era here at the Foundation, one of growth, development and new beginnings. For the first time in our 14 year history, we have awarded over £1million to voluntary and community groups and individuals here in Northamptonshire. Support from our donors and fund holders and other partners has exceeded all of our expectations as our endowment reached over £7 million and we’re managing funds of just over £9million. We said a fond farewell to our Chair Mr. David Laing, who took up the prestigious role of Lord Lieutenant of Northamptonshire and Patron of the Foundation and we welcomed our new Chair Mr. Paul Southworth OBE to lead our very capable, willing and passionate Board of trustees. After four marvellous years, we moved out of our offices at the Royal & Derngate, which undoubtedly helped us grow and we thank the staff and Board at the R&D for all their support during that time. We were honoured to be gifted larger office premises at 18 Albion Place, courtesy of David and the Laing Foundation. But for all our successes and celebrations, there was also sorrow; we were so deeply saddened that we lost a true supporter to our Community Foundation, our Patron, Lady Juliet Townsend, who valued the work that our Foundation did and acknowledged the true unsung heroes, the ‘army of volunteers’ that she so truly admired. Our thoughts continue to be with her family and we shall all miss her dearly. In her honour we created a legacy award in her name, which was unveiled

Rockin’ Roadrunners

at our prestigious Annual Awards event to recognise those unsung volunteers that she admired so much and we were delighted that John Townsend was able to present ‘The Lady Juliet Award for Volunteering. ‘ We believe that our time has come – as one of 48 Foundations across the UK we are here to stay and will continue to grow and support the voluntary and charitable sector now and in the years to come. We can only do that with all of our donors generous support. We thank you wholeheartedly for your help and we look forward to further growth spurts as we go from ‘teenager’ into ‘adulthood’. Victoria Miles, Chief Executive Paul Southworth OBE, Chair

Mud, sweat and tears Naomi’s surviving winter challenge

To raise funds in support of our Surviving Winter appeal, Fund Development Manager, Naomi Butters signed up to two challenges. Her first was a 12k obstacle course called The Iron Run and then just four weeks later she faced a gruelling 10k obstacle course called The Suffering. Naomi’s incredible efforts were rewarded by the generous sponsors, contributing £1,299 towards our campaign which raised a total of £9,600. During the 2014/2015 campaign we were able to provide direct support to over 780 people in our county distributing funds directly to both individuals as well as local organisations. The provision of keep warm packs, hot meals and social activities at local centres, helping to keep homes warmer by undertaking maintenance tasks and providing thermos flasks for hot drinks are just a few examples of how the funds were used. Serve Rushden received a grant to support a number of activities throughout the winter months including one to one monitoring of particularly vulnerable older people who have been identified by care workers, or referred by friends or relatives. The winter can be one of the hardest seasons to get through for the most vulnerable in our community due to isolation and cold and our annual campaign has been important to so many. Our goal this year is to help at least this number by supporting the work of community groups such as those offering lunch clubs and community transport schemes. It is vital that we help address the issues and fears affecting older people. To support this campaign visit: www.ncf.uk.com/OurProjects/SurvivingWinter

Major gifts are a cause to celebrate We had cause to celebrate during 2014/15 as we received three separate donations of £1million; our largest individual donations to date since our inception in 2001/2. Two of those donations we were able to increase by 50% under the Community First Endowment Match Challenge Fund, given by the Office for Civil Society. The first was a trust transfer from the Queen’s Institute Relief in Sickness Fund whereby the trustees handed over the trust to the Foundation to establish a named fund to focus on health and well-being for the people and communities in the county. The fund increased to over £1.5 million with the matched funding. The second donation was from a regular donor who generously gave £1million, to be used to fund mainly unregistered charities in the county, who would be exempt from applying to his own trust, this also attracted an uplift of 50%. And finally we received a further £1million from Lord Northampton to set up The Compton Fund for Arts, Culture and Heritage in Northamptonshire which is proving extremely popular with organisations delivering a wide variety of arts focused projects throughout the county.

Remembering Lady Juliet Townsend Lady Juliet served as High Sheriff of Northamptonshire and later became Lord Lieutenant of

Northamptonshire. She was Patron of Northamptonshire Community Foundation from 2008 to 2014.

As Patron, Lady Juliet was instrumental in helping to establish and grow the Northamptonshire Community Foundation and was a huge supporter of the work of the Foundation in funding mainly volunteer led groups across the county. “Lady Juliet frequently said that she was surrounded by ‘Saints’ – an army of volunteers who gave up their time, passion and energy to help support others in their communities and that she thought the whole country would inevitably come to a standstill if it weren’t for the army of volunteers providing essential services to local communities.” Victoria Miles

Welcome to our Impact Review 2015 Welcome to the Foundation’s second Impact Review. We are delighted to share with you insights and highlights into the value and demonstrated difference that donations and grants are making to our county and local communities within Northamptonshire.

The data paints a picture of the demonstrated difference grant awards have made to local people and communities on behalf of a range of donors. The information is based on completed end of grant reports from funded groups and charities within the last year. The impact measurement tool that we use enables the Foundation to capture and to demonstrate the value of the broad range of awards given out. Since 2011 Northamptonshire Community Foundation has been directly involved in developing and piloting a successful impact assessment tool on behalf of UKCF, the national network of Community Foundations. The result of this development work is a framework for providing compelling evidence of the impact of donor investment in community grant making.

Northamptonshire Community Foundation also works in partnership with Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire to better support the groundwork for voluntary and community activity to thrive in local communities. This helps create opportunities for new groups and projects to help provide local solutions to the issues that affect our communities.

We provide impact case studies across individual awards and donor programmes. The themes, outcomes and indicators of the framework enable us to capture the kind of change that groups are achieving and make us better able to track transformation and communicate this to current and potential donors and the wider community.

Whether you are an individual, company, charitable trust or statutory organisation Northamptonshire Community Foundation can help you make a lasting impact on an issue you feel passionate about.

Reaching the most deprived areas of Northamptonshire Out of 128,896 beneficiaries* for completed projects 44,031 were in the top 20% of most deprived areas. This represents projects doing targeted work in specific ward areas of Northamptonshire. Please note that funded groups working across several wards may also benefit people across the top 20% of most deprived areas. The data captured in the table refers specifically to targeted activity. We are able to provide tailored donor reports across funding programmes that capture case studies showing the impact of groups providing activity in the most deprived area of Northamptonshire. *please note that one beneficiary may have benefited by more than one project but this is not information we can quantify or track and also an individual may have benefited in several different ways via a project
