Cambridgeshire Community Foundation

Cambridgeshire Community Foundation

We help local companies, families and philanthropists to identify local charitable projects that are of interest to them - to offer some financial support, to volunteer or provide other means of help. Importantly, we ensure those that offer their support are appreciated and are kept informed about the difference their help has made to the lives of local people.

Community Foundations are a rapidly growing movement in the world of charity.

We help individuals, families, and companies who want to give something back to Cambridgeshire. We aim to provide an efficient and simple way for donors to make a long-term difference to the communities in which they live and work by setting up and then managing charitable funds on their behalf.

Donors do not give “to” us but “through” us to a wide range of vital projects throughout Cambridgeshire.

We act as a “broker” for small, local organisations, helping them access these grants - connecting local donors who care with good causes that matter.

We make it easier and more satisfying for individuals and companies to support community projects in their area by managing charitable funds set up on their behalf.

We provide a simpler way for local charities/voluntary groups to obtain grants by acting as a broker between donors and grant seekers and use our experience to give advice and help on topical community issues.
