Local Charities Day 2018

Today we’re rightly celebrating the outstanding organisations and individuals who are the lifeblood of our communities

Today we’re rightly celebrating the outstanding organisations and individuals who are the lifeblood of our communities. For Community Foundations every day is Local Charities Day. Supporting local charities is the essence of our work. Local is what we do. Supporting small grassroots organisations is our M.O. They embody our existence and we see the vital impact they make on communities across the UK. From a support centre for refugees in Oxford to a sanctuary for street drinkers in Sheffield, the groups we support are at the forefront of tackling key issues.

Small charities and us

Our network funds around 16,600 organisations a year, many of these are grassroots organisations and local charities.

Community Foundations and you

Community Foundations are charities in their own right and their work is inherently local. We’re proud to say that our network can help communities in every UK postcode. So this Local Charities Day, why not look up your local Community Foundation and get a flavour of the life changing work that our network funds.
