“Property Tectonics is a proud sponsor of The Salford Foundation Trust which provides financial help for young people to develop their talents; creating opportunities and success which may otherwise be lost to us all”.

To ensure that the Trust has achieved what it intended and its funders’ investment is being used wisely, we give priority to applications that can demonstrate that family poverty limits their opportunities. This is not means tested but relies upon the family to highlight why they cannot fund the opportunity, e.g. single parent, young carer etc. We also require the applicant to provide two referees who are willing to support the applicant to make the most of their opportunity and help them with their application.
We follow up with our grant recipients and their referees after their opportunity has begun to find out what progress has been made (for example have they achieved a musical grade, improved their performance) this helps us to measure the impact of The Salford Foundation Trust.
If there is a particular cause that your company supports, for example the arts your donation could be earmarked to support an individual who requires funding for an arts-based opportunity.
Depending on whether the applicant wishes to remain anonymous, there would be scope for your company to sponsor an individual and receive any associated publicity.
Fun runs, dress down days, bake sales, raffles, fashion and fundraising events are just some of the things companies can do to raise money for The Trust. Getting together with your work colleagues can strengthen employee relationships, enhance employee morale and even build critical skill sets and expertise.

What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid allows UK charities to claim back the basic rate tax already paid on donations by the donor. This means if you fund raise through our JustGiving page JustGiving will claim back from the government on your behalf 25p for every £1 donated, boosting the value of your fundraising potentially by a quarter.
For UK charities to claim the donor has to be a UK Income or Capital Gains taxpayer.

You can do something amazing by leaving a legacy to The Salford Foundation Trust. A gift in your Will, no matter what the size will make a big difference to children and young people in Salford.
£50.00 can help buy music tuition for three months for a child who might never have held an instrument before.
£250.00 will purchase a whole apprenticeship kit for a care leaver, young parent or
£500.00 covers the cost of one year’s swimming tuition for an elite athlete.
