About Us

We are a national network that works locally, inspiring people to give, raising awareness of local need and connecting people to causes that make a difference.

We harness the generosity of individuals, families and businesses to support thousands of committed people and groups in the UK – those who work hard for people who are vulnerable and most in need.

This giving creates stronger communities, making places better for everyone to live, work and grow up in. And then to give back to.

The network of accredited community foundations gives grants totalling over £65 million annually. This makes us one of the UK’s largest grant-giving organisations.
