Our charitable giving is focused on providing support to voluntary and community groups in Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex whose primary aim is to improve the quality of people's lives. The Birketts Charitable Fund, first set up in Suffolk in 2006, is administered by the Community Foundations in Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. Donations to the Fund are made annually by the partners of the firm (currently £80,000 per annum) and grants are awarded twice a year by a committee comprising a cross-section of staff and partners of the firm.
The firm and its staff also support additional initiatives which provide funds for a number of worthy causes. These take the form of organised or sponsored events, many of which have been running for a number of years.
During our 2018-19 financial year over £200,000 was distributed to local charitable, cultural and community projects.
