Last year the GSPCA were nominated for the 'Charity of the Year Award' at the Community Awards and we would like to ask you if you would vote for us this for 2013 as the Awards are now open.

Whether it is a fundraising project run by a local charity, a group of individuals or a team from a local business, or simply individual members of the public who feel motivated to do something for charity, Guernsey has an exceptional ability to raise money and contribute many man hours to the voluntary and community sector.

The launch of the Community Awards by the Guernsey Community Foundation complements the Foundation’s primary objective of promoting effective philanthropy within the bailiwick.

The Foundation is working on strategies to help build the capacity of organisations within the voluntary and community sector, helping them to be better prepared to receive increased levels of philanthropy, whether it is in the form of money, time or ideas. The Community Awards are an excellent way of highlighting and applauding the many success stories of the voluntary sector. The awards are intentionally informal yet educational, interesting and illuminating and have proven to be a great inspiration to the many guests in the room.

This years awards include -

  • Charity of the Year
