Our grants and programmes are accessible to those who need them, equipping and empowering the local community to create change.
Setting up a fund through the Community Foundation is similar to having your own charitable trust but without the hassle of administration.
In the last 40 years, we have awarded over £100 million in grants to individuals & local communities.
