Benevolence Today 2007-10

The joint work of the Benevolence Today Coalition of 35 charities ends in March 2010 after the end of its project life cycle. 

We want to thank all who have supported the campaign. At the end of three years, the benevolent sector is a giant step closer to having a new, stronger position which allows it to help more people. By working in partnership with others, Benevolence Today partners have helped 20% more people in 2009 than in 2006, when they set out to find new ways of reaching those who need help most.

How Benevolence Works

You can still download Benevolence Today's Working in Partnership brochure.

This gives a sound introduction to benevolence and grant-giving charities to other charities and agencies which may benefit from referring people in need to grant-givers. It explains how benevolent grant-giving relates to statutory benefits and what the main eligibility criteria are for applications.
