What is a Community Foundation?

The concept of a Community Foundation is simple.

We make it easy for people to contribute to a pool of funds which is used to support charitable projects through purposeful grant making.

We are governed by independent volunteer trustees that steward the growth of the fund, or endowment, to benefit the community in perpetuity.

Community Foundations work in partnership with donors, local organisations and the community to strengthen communities and increase opportunities.

We are uniquely placed to understand and respond to the immediate and long term needs of the community.
