Theory of Change

Our theory of change describes the change we want to make and the steps involved to make that change happen.

The Community Foundation has an impact on grantees (through funding approaches etc) and beneficiaries, (through the activities that they fund). We also have a direct impact on a social problem and on making communities, local areas and Northern Ireland a better place to live in, moved, and/or return to, through our grants plus and programme work.
