    4. 4. The Inspiration Behind Localgiving.com Local charitable organisations face big challenges to survive and grow • Economic downturn is reducing donations and grants (grassroots ending April 11) • As many as 40% small groups not expected to survive • Need to engage cost effectively with donors and supporters The Community Foundation Network had goals to address the above • Community Foundations (CFs) have extensive knowledge of local charities & CG • CFN wants to bridge the digital divide that restricts many local charities & CG “The term 'charity' can be used to refer to any charitable organisation, whether registered or not. I therefore cannot see any objection to the proposals”. Charity Commission – Dame Suzi Leather
