“Just a quick note to say how impressed I am with the new Foundation newsletter. SO much happening, Tudor is thrilled to have played a small part.” - Christopher Graves, Director, Tudor Trust
The work and growth of FDCW is dependent on the generosity of our benefactors and supporters. Since 2005, FDCW is very grateful to have received steady support from a small number of corporate sponsors, foundations and individuals. However, we are now seeking to widen our donor base and to develop our income-generating activities to be able to sustain all FDCW’s vital work, enabling people to experience positive, long-lasting change in their lives and in their wider communities.
Although many benefactors choose to remain anonymous, FDCW would like to offer public recognition to:
- Terrapinn (FDCW’s leading corporate sponsor, from 2007)
- FPMT (inaugural funding in 2004, and subsequent Merit Box project grants)
- Tudor Trust (staffing support and 16 Guidelines project development, 2008-2010)
- The Camellia Foundation (staffing support from 2012)
- UnLtd (Millennium Award to director Alison Murdoch, 2005-2006)
- Blaney Arts (design of 16 Guidelines for a Happy Life: Up Close publication and posters)
- Social Innovation (2013 grant to general funds)
- Hobden Associates (sponsorship of the UK launch conference, 2005)
- Kurukulla Centre, Boston, USA (sponsorship of the Knowledge Base working retreat, 2006)
- Tara Redwood School, Soquel, USA (co-host of the Americas launch Conference, 2006)
FDCW needs to raise a minimum of £200,000 each year to maintain its current level of development and services.
