Charitable Foundation Launches Facebook Page

27 April 2015

Charitable Foundation

Monmouthshire Building Society Charitable Foundation is proud to unveil its long-awaited new Facebook page.

The Foundation’s Facebook page will provide community groups and organisations from all walks of life, such as the arts, education, youth groups, the environment and sports groups, with topical news, details of successful funding awards and interesting community updates.

The launch of Monmouthshire Building Society Charitable Foundation’s Facebook page comes at a very exciting time, since it coincides with a very special one-off funding award of up to £5,000 which is open to applicants until Friday 29th May 2015.

The Foundation is happy to accept applications for smaller amounts of funding up to £1,000, but for organisations who would like to purchase more expensive items, but perhaps lack the funds to do so, this is an ideal opportunity for them to make their funding dreams come true.

Full information and guidance on how to apply can be found in the Foundation’s application form. Copies are available from any Monmouthshire Building Society branch or agency office, and can also be printed off from the ‘Community’ section of the Society’s website here. Updates about this award will be posted on the Facebook page.

Commenting on the launch of the Foundation’s Facebook page, Michael Lane, Chairman, said: “The Foundation has supported a great number of diverse organisations in communities across South Wales and the South West. With so many groups using social media these days, we thought it important to connect with the community in a fresh, modern way which we hope will lead to more groups applying for funding.”

He continued: “I hope to see the Facebook page thrive, with as many local organisations as possible joining and contributing, which will not only help us raise awareness of the funding stream itself, but will also provide a platform for us to shine a spotlight on the tremendous work we’ve carried out for some fifteen years now.”

Since 2000, Monmouthshire Building Society Charitable Foundation has contributed over £170,000 to 287 organisations and charities. In the last financial year alone, the Foundation provided support to 21 local groups, representing a significant contribution to local communities.
