Berkshire Community Foundation

To ensure that Ascot Racecourse supports the needs across the county, in 2017 we established a partnership with Berkshire Community Foundation (BCF) who identify vital causes and make grants to local charities and community groups. The racecourse has a dedicated fund that provides over £30,000 per annum to support local charity and community group initiatives.
Our funding has helped thousands of direct beneficiaries and we are delighted to have been able to offer support to the following organisations:


Ascot employees have also enrolled in a joint Volunteer Programme with BCF that enables staff to make a difference to charities and groups who benefit from our team’s time, expertise and friendship.  We have also been able to assist other charities via ad hoc donations of furniture and stock. 

Jim Fyfe, Philanthropy Director, Berkshire Community Fund, said, “The partnership with Ascot Racecourse and BCF has been a great example of a local business that takes its Corporate Social Responsibility seriously and realises the importance local businesses have towards supporting their local community.”
