Ways to give to your community

Why Give?

If you were born here, educated here, make your living here, had your family here or just came to party and never left; if Greater Manchester has made you; you have to put something back, you have to use your success to create the future.

Real community helps deepen and refine our sense of inclusion, belonging and place, it brings out the best in us. Forever Manchester’s role is to be the champion of local people who are prepared to do extraordinary things to make our communities thrive and to make sure that the talents, skills and assets that we all possess get a chance to be put into action.

Since Forever Manchester was established in 1989 we have delivered over £59 million into local communities. All of the money raised for Forever Manchester is used to fund and support over 1,300 community projects each year. This means we will have supported community activity within one mile of your home or business if it’s in Greater Manchester.

Every donation, no matter how large or small, stays here in Greater Manchester, supporting grassroots community projects that make a real difference.

How to Give


The most traditional and straightforward way to support our efforts is to make a donation of cash to help us help others working across our community – you can do this in a number of ways and to suit all pockets.


What if your donation could provide for community needs not just in your lifetime, but forever? The Greater Manchester Endowment Fund  or Forever Fund lets you do just that.

The Fund is a permanent endowment where your donation is pooled with other donations for maximum benefit and invested to achieve long-term capital growth, while a portion of the fund is distributed annually to support our local communities forever.
