Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside has welcomed on board two new Trustees to support its legacy of facilitating structured charitable giving.
Naz Zaman, Chief Executive of Lancashire BME Network, and Donna Howitt, a Director at Liverpool ONE, have taken up their posts and, alongside fellow Trustees, will help oversee the organisation and governance of the Community Foundations, a registered grant-giving charity.
During the pandemic Community Foundations has helped raise and distribute over £4 million through COVID-19 emergency funding. This has supported charitable and community organisations helping those most vulnerable across Lancashire and Merseyside.
The Community Foundation for Merseyside was established 21 years ago, while the Community Foundation for Lancashire was formed 13 years ago. During that time, Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside has distributed a combined total of more than £56 million to local community and charitable groups.
