SCVYS – Staffordshire Council of Voluntary Youth Services
The SCVYS Endowment Fund was established in early 2013.
With funding decreasing there was a concern about how to ensure that Staffordshire’s youth are not placed at any disadvantage. Therefore, SCVYS took the decision to establish a permanent endowment fund with the Staffordshire Community Foundation. The fund, which was opened with just over £70,000, will ensure that there will be a permanent source of funding for Staffordshire’s youth organisations.
With a remit to ‘benefit and support the local voluntary youth sector as well as the personal and social development of local young people’, this fund aims to ensure that the youth sector remains strong.
The fund is still in a growth phase and so is not currently making awards.
Although the fund was started by the Staffordshire Council of Voluntary Youth Services, it is an open fund, meaning that anyone can donate. In addition, anyone who donates to the SCVYS fund may be eligible to receive match funding, which means we could add up to 50% of your donation. If you particularly care about the youth sector in Staffordshire and would like to contribute to it’s success, you can donate by sending a cheque or postal order, made payable to ‘Staffordshire Community Foundation’ and marked clearly on the back, ‘SCVYS’ to;Staffordshire Community Foundation Bl157, Staffordshire University Blackheath Lane Stafford Staffordshire ST18 0AD
