Strategic Solutions celebrates donating over £200,000 to local charities from its Community Foundation

Strategic Solutions reaches £200,000 milestone in donations to local causes from its Community Foundation

Award-winning independent Chartered Financial Planners Strategic Solutions is celebrating surpassing the £200,000 landmark in donations from its Community Foundation.

Over the last five years since it was established, the Community Foundation has helped over 90 charities and organisations across the south coast.

The company and its advisers have showcased an unwavering commitment to giving back to the community that has trusted and supported it throughout its thirteen years.

To date, the Community Foundation has generously contributed an impressive £200,881 to worthy causes, further solidifying its status as one of the company's most impactful initiatives.

The Community Foundation aims to have a positive impact in the communities where their clients live, work, and take part in recreational activities. The primary objective is to channel grants towards small, grassroots groups who are facing funding challenges but hold immense potential for creating real change with limited resources.

One of the local causes that the Community Foundation has recently supported is The Colour Works Foundation. The team were pleased to donate £2,000 to the community based charity which aims to help disadvantaged young people build their emotional intelligence and enable them to make better choices for themselves in the future.

Liz Davies, CEO at The Colour Works Foundation expressed her gratitude for the generous donation and explained how the donation would support their work helping young people in Bournemouth. “Through our ‘building self-belief’ programme young people are given skills to understand themselves, understand others, develop decision-making and improve their communication, but most of all they leave the course knowing their own value”.

The team were also pleased to support West Berkshire based charity Swings & Smiles with the purchase of a new sensory swing. Hannah Waugh, Fundraising and Impact Coordinator said “We’re really grateful for the support of Strategic, the funding of our new sensory swing will allow us to take our sensory services into the local community in order to make it more accessible and fun!”

In December 2023, the foundation initiated the Christmas Crackers campaign, dedicated to supporting various local appeals. Across thirteen days, they actively backed different local causes, shedding light on their significance. These endeavours spanned from toy appeals to food bank donations, gathering widespread local appreciation, particularly during the festive season.
The committee is committed to helping more local charities over the coming year helping to support and benefit as many as possible.
