The Mayor’s Fund for Bristol is launched
Release date: Mon, 04/03/2013
The Mayor’s Fund for Bristol is being launched this week. The Fund will be managed by Quartet Community Foundation and money received will be given as grants to charities and social enterprises in Bristol. All grant decisions will be independent of Bristol City Council.
The first year’s grants will support work with disadvantaged children and young people in Bristol. The grants will make a significant difference to their situation, experience and opportunities.
Mayor George Ferguson said: “We’re all feeling the impact of tough economic times. This impact is not, however, felt equally by all our residents and communities. Some are in greater difficulties than others and the disadvantages they face are deepening.
“That’s why having a way to donate locally to help our city’s most disadvantaged people is important - and that’s why I have set up The Mayor’s Fund for Bristol.
“I’m passionate about making Bristol better for everyone and hope that those who can, and want to, will join me in creating this independently managed Fund for Bristol.”
Information about the Mayor’s Fund for Bristol will be delivered to every household and business in the city this week as part of the annual Council Tax/Business rate information.
