Christmas in Nelson is for everyone this year

Christmas can be a difficult time for families already in financial need.

The Big Give is our highest profile fundraiser of the year and it’s our way to directly involve the Nelson community to help families celebrate this important holiday without worry and with joy.

For Christmas 2018 our focus is to give families choices in how to use their Fifeshire support. Gift cards are the best way to do this. Your donation of a gift card for food, toys, books, clothing, anything you wish and in any amount, will let recipient families decide how to celebrate.

Our Mission

In 1993, a group of local people set up the Fifeshire Foundation as a charitable Trust to raise money locally to support local people in need.  Since 1993 our aim remains the same, to help people in crisis, and to  help people make longer term changes in their lives.

Donate in any amount

Our grants pay for goods and services from local businesses and suppliers, so your donations go back into the Nelson community.

Our administration costs are covered by generous sponsors, ensuring 100% of the money you donate will go where it’s needed.

I’d had a terrible time with doctors’ bills
and having to find a bond when we moved
house. It was such a relief to receive $180
from the Fifeshire Foundation so my son
didn’t have to miss out on school camp.

Looking out for locals

We support individual and families in need as well as the organisations
who work with people in need.

We know that many people in our region are coping with things like poverty, unemployment, health crises and domestic violence.  In addition people may be managing to make ends meet, but then face a crisis or an unexpected extra expense and need somewhere else to turn.
