How You Can Help

How You Can Help The Craven Trust

  • When you give to the Craven Trust, you ensure that your money benefits your neighbours and community.
  • You can see the difference that your gift has made.
  • And you can even have a say in how the money is spent.

Here’s how you can help…

Join Our Friends Scheme

Our Friends share our commitment to improving the quality of life of people in Craven by pledging a regular donation.

One-off Donations

As our funding benefits groups and organisations working at community level, even the smallest donation makes a real difference. To donate to the Craven Trust you can click the donate button above or contact the Administrator on 07954 803327 or by email at

Please consider using Gift Aid on your donation. This allows us to give out £1.25 in grants for every £1 we receive. You can Gift Aid your donation by checking the appropriate box on the online form or by downloading and filling out a Gift Aid form found here.


Remember us in your will and you make life better for people in Craven for years to come. You can even let us know if you would like a particular type of group or part of the district to benefit from your gift.

Give As You Earn

This is the most tax-effective way for individuals to give directly from their salary to charity.

Named Funds

Set up a named fund within the Craven Trust and you have all the benefits of running your own charity without the paperwork. You can still decide the priorities for grant making and ask for the fund to bear your name. Named funds can be set up by individuals or companies.

Corporate Sponsorship

Show your company cares by sponsoring one of our fundraising events or making a contribution to other identifiable costs.

We recognise all donations and we will send you annual updates to tell you about the projects we have supported and the grants we have made with your help.

For more information on how you can help, contact Rowena Garton on 07954 803327 (mobile).


Your kind support is greatly appreciated.
