Warley Woods Community Trust has to find every penny needed to manage Warley Woods every single year.  There is no endowment and no major benefactor.   We need to raise around £800 each and every day to be able to pay our staff and basic bills. 

Put very simply around one third comes from support from Sandwell Council, one third from the golf course and one third from public support in donations, shop sales, room bookings, events and donations from Trusts and Foundations.  This last third also does include income from financial arrangements with the cafe, golf professional and ice cream contractor.

We try to keep our income streams as diverse as possible, so that we are not solely dependent on one or two sources, as this could cause immediate problems if one stopped.  We have a savings account (reserves), but we try to keep this for emergencies and investments.  We work very hard to maximise our income from individual donors, golf and shop customers as the more we can raise, the more we can spend to make Warley Woods a better place.

If you would like to see our finances in more detail, then copies of our annual reports can be downloaded on the Charity Commission's website.  

If you would like to help us keep Warley Woods looking great, then please make a donation.
