Become a Patron

The Foundation has more than 40 Patrons – local businesses and wealthy individuals who make a considerable annual donation to the foundation, enabling us to change lives on Teesside.

Their donations are reinvested into the community, helping those in need. But being a Patron isn’t just about the donation – our patrons get involved with the funding application decisions, present the cheques and awards to our Teesside Heroes and Golden Giveaway winners.

Our Patrons are recognised in our newsletters and receive positive press coverage of their support.

Annual Patronage is £5,000 for organisations and £2,750 for individuals.
