Our Donors play a valuable role in enabling a vital community-presence on the ground.
As time goes on we will get better at telling people about the Community Centre – what happens here; what we need; and the aspirations held for the future. Our capacity is limited, therefore the immediate plan is to continue doing what we know we do well :- listen, observe and respond in small, meaningful ways to what we see, hear and what people tell us they need and are willing to support.
With time, and as we are more able to demonstrate our worth we trust that more people will grow confidence in our simple approach to what we do; built on human connection and informed by the passage of time. We want you to know that we can be trusted to act wisely with your financial gifts – along with all the other forms of giving which we rely upon to sustain efforts.
How are we funded? The core costs of the community centre are predominantly funded by earned income through room hire, food & refreshments, with local donors contributing approximately ten percent toward overheads in 2020. The Town Council has committed to contributing £10K per annum towards core costs, since 2019.
The Abergavenny Community Trust is developing a fundraising strategy.
