Charity description

Cumbria Community Foundation logo
Cumbria Community Foundation exists to address disadvantage by making life-changing grants and promoting philanthropy. We are also here to respond to emerging need, having managed four disaster appeals, most recently raising £10.3m in response to the floods in 2015.

We provide philanthropic services to individuals, families and organisations and manage 80 grantmaking funds, supporting more than 500 community projects per year on behalf of our fundholders. Since 1999, we have invested more than £41m into almost 4,000 groups and 8,000 individuals.

We provide a simplified approach to effective charitable giving. As one of the UK’s leading, accredited community foundations, we have the expertise and local knowledge to help individuals, families, companies, charitable trusts and public-sector bodies invest in their communities.

Together, we seek to support people and organisations wishing to invest in the local community.
