Community foundations provide more accessible grant giving for smaller organisations
In 2023, over 40,000 grants were distributed to projects throughout the UK by our network. At £4,000 on average, these smaller grants are more accessible and achievable for grassroots organisations that often struggle to apply for and receive larger grants.
