The NFU Mutual Agency Giving Fund

A national fund to deliver local support during these challenging times

We have 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 light of the national emergency this country is facing, we have allocated a £1m fund to support local frontline charities who have been affected by the impact of coronavirus; to help our communities deal with the unfolding situation and increase their resilience for the future.

The NFU Mutual Agency Giving Fund forms part of an overall £32m support package NFU Mutual committed for the benefit of its members and communities affected by the Coronavirus.

To ensure that this £1m fund is distributed throughout our communities, we asked each of our 316 Agency businesses across all corners of the UK to use their local knowledge to nominate a charity to receive an equal share of the fund, a donation of just over £3,000.

The majority of these selected charities will make an impact to those in the community who are needing emotional and social support, as well as charities that have struggled for funding due to the pandemic, particularly hospices and foodbanks.

To see how the NFU Mutual Agency Giving Fund is making a difference to local communities affected by Coronavirus, please see our impacts film and read some of our case studies below.
