Independent property developer Rectory Homes have today announced the launch of their charitable foundation, which will provide grant funding for local charities and community groups.

Funded entirely by Rectory Homes, the Rectory Foundation aims to evolve the company’s charitable giving. Over the last 14 years, they have supported many local organisations awarding over £500,000 in grants, in partnership with Heart of Bucks. Creating the foundation was the next step to allow them to support even more community organisations with their vital work.

Owners Simon and Sarah Vickers said:

“The Rectory Foundation is about supporting the communities that need it most in Buckinghamshire and beyond. We are looking to give opportunities in places where they may be lacking, improve the offerings of community projects and support our healthcare systems with the most up to date technology within this part of the country.

“When we build homes in a community we want to support that injection of new life and also those who live there currently. The Rectory Foundation to its core is about building and strengthening communities beyond bricks and mortar.”

Grants of up to £5,000 are available for projects that meet the foundation’s vision of ‘thriving people and places in our local communities’. The project must also have one of the following areas of focus:

  • Helping those most in need within the community, particularly those who are isolated or disadvantaged.
  • The improvement of the local environment, accessible community areas or buildings, and green spaces.

Priority will given to projects or groups that operate in or benefit Buckinghamshire. For more information on the Rectory Foundation and to apply, please click here.
