This snapshot report looks at how community foundations responded to the coronavirus pandemic. It examines why the community foundation model made it possible to distribute thousands of emergency grants to local charities and organisations that were at the forefront of the community-led response to the pandemic.

Through community foundations, thousands of people benefited from the charities they rely on being kept afloat. Since lockdown began our members have worked tirelessly to support the communities they serve. In doing so they have shown great determination and local insight and deserve recognition for the pivotal role they have played in ensuring emergency funding went to where it needed to go.
