Durham University Community Fund

Durham University Community Fund

“Welcome to the new Durham University Community Fund (DUCF) Payroll Giving page. The Durham University Community Fund has been set up to provide grants to a range of charities and non-profit organisations that staff and students already support through volunteering. The aim of the Fund is very simple – to allow the University and its staff to support a range of charities via a staff-specific fund, in an easy, and tax efficient, manner. The Fund is held and managed independently by County Durham Community Foundation. ”

Most excitingly

  • for the first year of operation the University will match all staff donations up to a maximum of £10,000, plus;
  • County Durham Community Foundation will also provide a similar match of £8,000 net of their administrative costs

All this means that an example donation of £20 per month (for a standard rate taxpayer) would actually only cost the staff member £16 and, including the match funding in year one, could deliver a total of £672 into the Fund to be distributed to our community partners.
