A national fund to deliver local support during these challenging times
NFU Mutual Agency Giving Fund returns in 2021 with £2 million for local charities.
We’ve been a proud champion of rural communities the length and breadth of the UK for over 100 years, supporting local causes is part of what we do day to day.
In 2020, we recognised the vital need for support by local frontline charities in light of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Knowing that agency businesses are best-placed in their communities to identify where local funds should be directed, we set up the Agency Giving Fund, a £1 million initiative to help our communities deal with the unfolding situation and increase their resilience for the future.
In response to the ongoing challenges faced by communities across the UK, we’ve announced a further £2 million to the Agency Giving Fund for 2021.
To ensure these donations reach all corners of the UK, NFU Mutual’s Agents, with over 300 offices nationwide, will be given the opportunity to nominate local charities to receive a share of the fund. The funds will be distributed over 16 weeks from the end of February, offering support as lockdown measures continue to impact our communities.
The Agency Giving Fund will help charities to continue providing life-changing services throughout the pandemic, while also building their long-term resilience. Last year, our fund supported a range of initiatives, including frontline health projects, mental health out reach programmes, food parcel deliveries and dementia support groups.
