INTRODUCTION I am delighted to report that Sussex Community Foundation has had another successful year. We gave over £1.6 million in grants to 332 Sussex charities and community groups who spend their time working to help others in a million different ways. It’s our tenth anniversary this year and I am very proud of what we have achieved in our first decade. At the outset, our objective was to be a vehicle for local donors to support their communities in an effective and engaged way. We have achieved that, raising £21.4 million for Sussex of which £11.6 million is in endowment which means it will still be here, giving back to the community, long after we have all moved on. We now have 76 funds from which we have given £9.8 million.

So we’ve achieved a great deal. However, there is lot we haven’t been able to do.

17% Older people are a significant feature of Sussex. In some parts, almost 17% of people are over 75.

WHAT WE BELIEVE...

25% People living on low incomes in rural areas continue to face significant disadvantage. 25% of people in Sussex (exc Brighton) live in rural areas.

Sussex Community Foundation believes that sustainable long term social change comes from within a community. We provide grants to support charities and community groups to make the changes they want to see. We believe that philanthropy plays a vital role in supporting this change.

Sussex Community Foundation Annual Review 2016

In every one of our four grant rounds each year, there is a shortfall in the amount of money we are able to give. In 2015-16, that shortfall was around £400,000 and we were only able to meet about half of all the applications we received which reached the panel stage. This means there were strong applications for great projects that we would have liked to have funded. We just didn’t have the money we needed to do so. Among the many projects we weren’t able to fund were self-help sessions for people with depression, drop-in and advice services for people with learning disabilities, food for a housing charity, a wheelchair-accessible bus for people with dementia, rural transport running costs and nursing patients at a hospice, along with much else.

In addition, the landscape out there is changing. Austerity has begun to make a real impact on the lives of people in our communities and on the charities and community groups that support them. The funding landscape itself has changed, too. Local authorities are commissioning community groups to do much more of the work that the state used to provide and there has been an increase in new forms of funding social change. All of this means that our Sussex communities need our support now, more than ever. I want to thank all the people that have supported us since 2006 – we wouldn’t be where we are now without your donations – whether that has been your money, your time, your expertise or your encouragement. We hope you will continue to support us as we face the challenges of the next decade in our beautiful county.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER I first heard about community foundations in 2004. For much of my life, I had been aware that there were areas of real disadvantage, sitting among the leafy lanes of Sussex and that, in the prettiest villages, there were people who struggled to get by. I had worked with many charities to address these problems. It was during a conversation about one of these initiatives that I asked a fundraising advisor how we could get local companies and the more affluent people of the county to give to local charities. He told me: “Well, you need a community foundation!” and that was how the story began.

4

Looking back ten years later, Sussex Community Foundation has made great strides towards its goals. I am immensely proud to have founded this excellent charity and I congratulate all the trustees, donors, ambassadors, staff and volunteers who have worked so hard to turn that initial idea into a reality. I especially thank all the community groups and volunteers who work so hard to try to make Sussex a great place to live for everyone. I wish Sussex Community Foundation even greater success for the next ten years and urge the people and companies of Sussex to continue to give generously to address that disadvantage. I feel that the charity may be needed now, more than ever.

The Duke of Richmond and Gordon

A MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIRMAN Sussex Community Foundation has established itself in ten short years as an essential part of life in the Sussex charity sector. Indeed, it has reached existing and, more importantly, new donors across the county and harnessed their giving to an extraordinarily diverse range of Sussex charities.

I retire as Chairman at this year’s AGM and I am grateful for the support I have received from the Chief Executive and his colleagues, my fellow trustees and donors in expanding the reach of the Foundation in terms of influence and funding in the last three and a half years.

This partnership between donors and charities is unique to the concept of community foundations and is growing fast across the nation. Initially, the Foundation benefited from Government funding and matched funding was a significant inducement to donors. However, even though such funding is no longer available, the Foundation now has the expertise and experience to advise its donors on where to invest their giving effectively and provides the reassurance that the umbrella of community foundations enables. I am convinced that this is a more professional and durable solution for giving than managing a personal or family charitable trust.

The challenge that I leave to my successors is the growing demand for funding from the Sussex charitable sector. National and local government funding for charities will be all but eliminated at a time when the Foundation’s research indicates a growing need amongst the vulnerable and the disadvantaged. We will help to meet that challenge if we grow as effectively as we have done in the last ten years.

THE IMPACT

“The funding enabled us to continue our weekly Job Club for a further three terms this year. It increased our capacity to conduct additional outreach to new beneficiaries and to build on our existing Job Club offer,” said Sofie Franzen, Director of Community Services.

PROJECT OUTCOMES

8 Our donors help to build thriving communities by investing in them in a sustainable way over a longer period of time. We’ve been investing in the Bridge Community Education Centre since 2011 and, in that time, the Centre has received 11 grants from us totalling £42,281. The Bridge is a local community education centre based on the east side of Brighton, offering advice, support, courses and creative crafts. In 2015, they received an American Express grant of £6,234 to continue to run their weekly Job Club.

The area and the people The area’s housing estates have high levels of families experiencing worklessness. Employers who want to recruit local residents report that they are unable to find candidates with appropriate skills and behaviours, preferring to recruit university students Sussex Community Foundation Annual Review 2016

WHAT THE PARTICIPANTS SAY...

What our grant paid for

into lower paid flexible jobs. Local youth projects and schools report a considerable lack of engagement of young people. Barriers to gaining and sustaining employment are multiple, complex and entrenched. There is a financial imperative to seek work but many people lack confidence, essential skills, work experience, or knowledge to impress employers with their CV, requiring more oneto-one support and specialist advice.

The project The project supports the long-term unemployed residents to make the transition into education, training and employment. Their advice and guidance programme supports nearly 300 people a year of whom 100 seek their support in developing skills for work.

“This has really aided my personal recovery and selfesteem. In addition to their kindness and understanding, this has helped me to feel empowered and ready for work.”

“Just to let you know, things are going great with my job and I am really happy after the last time we met.” “I am very pleased to let you know that I got the catering job. I start next week. Thank you for all you have done for me.” 9

What would have happened without the funding? “Without the funding, we would have been unable to run as many Job Club sessions as we have,” says Sofie. “Specifically, the funding has increased our capacity to develop the programmes we offer through the Job Club and has helped us to conduct more outreach to attract a wider range of beneficiaries to the programme. Without the funding, it is likely we would not have been able to achieve the level of outcomes described here. Additionally, we have and continue to develop a volunteer relationship with American Express employees at all levels of the organisation.”

In every grant round, we receive strong applications for great projects that we’d like to fund but just don’t have the money to do so. The shortfall is about £400,000 across the year. Sussex Community Foundation Annual Review 2016


DIVERSIFYING FUNDS The Ore Church Mice Playgroup received a grant of £1,000 to send two staff on Level 3 forest school leadership training through the Sussex Wildlife Trust, with the potential to benefit up to 50 children a year.

When tragedy struck at the Shoreham Air Show in August 2015, generous Sussex people responded immediately and, over the coming weeks and months, raised a phenomenal £194,000 to help the bereaved families and others who suffered as a result of that terrible event. Sussex Community Foundation was asked to manage the Shoreham Air Show Fund on behalf of Adur District Council, Brighton & Hove City Council, West Sussex County Council and Worthing Borough Council. Since then, the Foundation has made grants of £111,545 to bereaved families and others to cover expenses such as funeral costs, transport and accommodation costs, counselling costs, and general living costs. All of the applications received have been supported, in part or in full.

This year, we have created a number of new funds that have taken us down some interesting new grant-making roads. Sussex Lund, a new grants programme to support practical projects that will improve the ecology, natural beauty and landscapes of the High Weald, was created and launched by Peter Baldwin and Lisbet Rausing, in collaboration with Sussex Community Foundation. Recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the High Weald is an exceptional medieval landscape, with a wealth of wildlife and historic features that provide a strong sense of place, enrich lives and inspire community pride. Sussex Lund made its first awards, 35 grants totalling £209,836, in March.

Sussex Community Foundation Annual Review 2016

Our new Hastings & Rother Reducing Health Inequalities Fund awarded grants of over £440,000 to 57 voluntary sector and community organisations in Hastings and Rother to improve health and wellbeing, access to local healthcare and other support services. The Fund, which is a partnership between the NHS Hastings & Rother Clinical Commissioning Group, East Sussex County Council, Hastings Voluntary Action, Rother Voluntary Action and Sussex Community Foundation, supports projects that support people with mental health issues, learning disabilities and/or long-term conditions, children and young people, older people or black and minority ethnic groups.

GIVING YOUR WAY Whether you are an individual, a family or company, if you feel the time is right to give back to Sussex, we can help you maximise your giving. Sussex Community Foundation is the ideal vehicle for people who want to put something back into the communities where they have lived and worked. By channelling funds to grassroots community projects, the Foundation improves the lives of disadvantaged people across Sussex.

Named fund

Leave a legacy

Our named fund is a charitable fund (usually £25,000 or more), tailored to your interests, and used to make grants to charities and community groups in Sussex.

Many of our supporters have been committed to Sussex for many years and don’t want that commitment to end when they pass away. The Brenda Ford Fund was set up using a legacy left to us in 2011. It gives grants to charities and community groups in Sussex that support women suffering from or at risk of domestic abuse. One such group is Rise, which provides a safe, confidential space for women to share their experiences of domestic abuse.

Glenn Earle set up a named fund with us in 2011.

We can help charities and trusts to meet their aims, by helping to manage grant-making, or taking on management of a trust. J A Innes (pictured) set up the Innes Memorial Fund in 1962. His grandson, James Innes, secured the good work of his grandfather’s fund in 2015 when the trust transferred to Sussex Community Foundation.

“I believe I am able to improve my and my children’s lives. I feel supported and safer since accessing Rise.” Rise client

WHAT THE CLIENTS SAY...

WHAT THE INVESTORS SAY...

“We have been impressed to hear about the role which community foundations play in helping people with a philanthropic interest in local giving. They provide a highly bespoke service, working with donors to help them identify their areas of interest and then putting together a plan for how this might be implemented with greatest impact in their local area.” Gary Rogerson, Heartwood Investment Management

OLD FRIENDS

When the Foundation first came into existence, it had to work hard to build people’s trust. The Foundation was brand new and was a new way of giving that many people had not heard of before. “We didn’t have a penny in the bank!” says CEO Kevin Richmond. “The trust put in us by Professor and Mrs Rausing was a massive help. The leap of faith they took by entrusting us to make the most of their giving locally meant that other people followed their lead and came on board too. We can’t thank them enough for that.”

Small grants to small community groups is our trademark. Groups like CAMEO Club in Crawley, one of the very first we funded in early 2007, who make a little go a long way. We have given CAMEO at least one grant a year of around £500 every year since then. Here, Jean Felstead of CAMEO, tells us what the group does.

14

The Marit and Hans Rausing Fund at Sussex Community Foundation was the first named fund to be established when the Foundation was founded in 2006. The Rausing Fund also gave that very first £500 grant to CAMEO Club for the rent of the church hall where the group met.

“CAMEO (Come & Meet Each Other) Club was founded in 2004 by seven people who felt there was a need for a town centre group for people primarily of retirement age to enjoy social activities. By 2006, with very little money in the pot, we gradually started to increase our membership. But, receiving a grant from Sussex Community Foundation really set us off in the right direction. We were able to subsidise some activities. Over the past ten years, we have grown from meetings in a small hall, followed by a move to a bigger venue and, at the present time, to The Friary Hall, Crawley Town Centre. We now have a membership of 130. We are proud of what we have been able to achieve so far. Originally, many of our members came to meetings on their own and have since made new friends, continuing to meet up for other social activities. The programmes are varied – speakers giving talks on selected topics of interest, musical entertainment, bingo, quizzes, ploughman’s lunches, cream teas, bring & buy sales, a book club and much more.

THE FUND HAS AWARDED A TOTAL OF

£865,104 Several day trips are arranged throughout the year, including a special Christmas outing. All this would not have been possible without the continued help and support of organisations such as Sussex Community Foundation. Congratulations from CAMEO to the Foundation for all the marvellous help and support you give to charities and community groups in Sussex. Thank you, thank you.” Jean Felstead

IN GRANTS SINCE IT WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2006

Programme Manager Laura Williams is in no doubt how important the support of Professor and Mrs Rausing has been. “Marit and Hans Rausing have given us a significant amount of money each year to help us address deprivation and disadvantage in a responsive manner. Many of these groups have been perhaps ‘harder to understand’. The Marit & Han Rausing Fund has enabled us to be more thoughtful in our grant-making and to have a substantial positive impact on some of the issues that find it harder to get funding. The consistent support from Professor and Mrs Rausing has enabled us to develop a reputation for meaningful longer-term funding and to support communities in a way that we were set up to do, as a service to the community, as well as to our donors. It’s really nice that they have continued to trust us with their local charitable giving and it’s safe to say we wouldn’t be where we are today without them.”

EVENTS What we offer our donors is a chance to build their philanthropy. We keep in touch with them and – keep them in touch with the hundreds of charities and community groups that make up the Sussex voluntary sector – with our events throughout the year.

We held our 2015 annual meeting at the Rotunda Café in Preston Park, Brighton. Lively discussion was had around the topic of the day which was: The role of philanthropy in an age of austerity: can private donors plug the gaps in public funding?. Speakers included Becky Shaw, Chief Executive of East Sussex County Council (pictured), Sally Polanski, Chief Executive of Brighton & Hove Community Works, and Andrew Wright, Communications and Grants Manager at The Arcadia Fund.

Our third Sussex in the City event, aimed at those with a strong link to Sussex but who live and work elsewhere, took place at The Charterhouse in April. We were honoured that top fund manager Anthony Bolton, was our key speaker. Anthony launched his Boltini Fund in 2012. He is pictured here addressing guests. Thank you to long-time supporters and friends, Jonathan and Caroline Lucas, who were kind enough to offer us their beautiful Warnham Park home as a venue for our latest professional advisors’ seminar in July. We work closely with professional advisors who wish to offer their clients good quality advice about tax-effect philanthropy. Pictured here is Ian Williams of Ridgeford Consultants Ltd (right) with one of our trustees Patricia Woolgar, formerly of Irwin Mitchell LLP.

One way we keep in touch with the groups we fund is through our series of Seeing is Believing events. We took the High Sheriff of West Sussex, Mark Spofforth OBE to visit some groups in May. One was Just Different, a small charity that creates positive social attitudes towards disability and difference by delivering of thought-provoking and inspirational workshops for children and young people, written, created and delivered by disabled adults.

PHYLLIDA STEWART-ROBERTS We were saddened to hear of the death of Phyllida Stewart-Roberts, the former Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex in August. When she was Lord Lieutenant, Phyllida was highly influential in the birth of Sussex Community Foundation. She was our first Joint President and gave us her wholehearted support in so many ways ever since. Throughout her life, Phyllida gave generously of her time, energy and wisdom to many charities and we were proud to have had her support. She was a lovely person and we will miss her terribly.
