The broad purpose of UK Community Foundations is to promote and support local charitable and community activity. This is achieved through managing donor funds, building endowments and making grants to charities and community groups. Community foundations are created by and for local people.
Each community foundation has its own grant-making policy and may administer funds on behalf of other agencies. Levels of grant assistance, therefore, vary greatly.
Local voluntary, community and charitable groups may apply whilst some community foundations have funds for individuals. Each has its own grant-making policy, criteria and timescales.
Applications from national charities may be accepted if the proposed project is firmly rooted in the local area.
