Boardmasters organiser, Vision Nine, has announced that this year’s event raised £115,492 for the Boardmasters Foundation, the largest total of funds raised since the foundation began.

Individuals, groups, charities and organisations that fall under the Boardmasters Foundation key pillars of focus – culture and community – can now apply for funds as 2023 applications are now open.

In total, over £436k has been raised since the foundation commenced its work in 2017, and the last two years alone has seen a 35% rise in these funds.

CEO of Vision Nine, and founder of the Boardmasters Foundation, Andrew Topham, said: “We continue to be ambitious in our objective of building on, and growing, the annual Boardmasters Foundation fundraising and charitable donations year-on-year.

“Our 2023 total of over £115,000 is yet another rewarding success, meaning we can encourage even more Newquay and Cornwall-based organisations to consider applying. This then means we can all work together to deliver funding for vital and far-reaching projects and programmes, many of which can positively impact daily lives whilst meeting today’s ongoing challenges. Each year we review all of the applications against our key pillars of Community and Culture and this year will be no different.”
