Today (9.1.2024), Buckinghamshire law firm B P Collins, has announced that Bucks charities and not for profit organisations can now apply for a portion of its £10,000 charity fund, via its stewardship with Heart of Bucks. Since 2014, B P Collins has donated £100,000 to nearly 40 charities across the county.

B P Collins’ charity fund is centred on meeting three objectives, which reflect the firm’s CSR values: building stronger communities, providing better futures and helping to create safer lives. As long as the objectives of the charities applying, focus on one of these themes, there are no restrictions as to what the funding can be used for. It could be for general running costs, launching a new project or buying new equipment. Applications are open until 31 January 2024.

Simon Deans, B P Collins’ senior partner says:

“Since B P Collins launched its stewardship fund with Heart of Bucks 10 years’ ago, we have helped to fund new charity projects, provided a lifeline for struggling organisations and directly helped their beneficiaries. We look forward to meeting the incredible organisations we will be supporting this year, to learn how our funding will make an impact in 2024.”

In 2023, Wycombe Women’s Aid, which provides safe accommodation as well as practical and emotional support within the refuge and through outreach in the local community to women, children and young people experiencing the effects of domestic violence, received £3,000. On describing the impact that B P Collins’ donation would make, it said:

 “This grant will be of huge benefit to Wycombe Women’s Aid as we will be using it to support a number of areas of service delivery, from offsetting some of the increased utility costs within the refuge, to enabling workers to undertake a number of training sessions to enhance their work with the women, children and young people.”

Henry Allmand, Chief Executive of Heart of Bucks said:

“We’re thrilled to be supporting the philanthropic efforts of B P Collins for another year. Its funds provide such a valuable resource to local communities and allow charities and community groups to continue making a real difference.”

The B P Collins fund is open for applications throughout January, before a shortlist will be decided. Those shortlisted will be guaranteed to receive a financial award. They will be invited to a lunch organised by B P Collins in Gerrards Cross, before its staff vote for the charities that will receive donations ranging from £3,000 to £1,250. 

Previous recipients of B P Collins’ donations have included environmental, refugee, domestic abuse, youth and health charities across Buckinghamshire.
