A national network
By partnering with UK Community Foundations, government departments, and other funders who want to reach all parts of the UK, can be sure they have a dedicated team on the ground who know the area and are able to respond to local need. Our members are often able to leverage matched funding when this is a prerequisite for funding to be secured. We offer both full national coverage and a manageable number of partners, therefore combining geographical spread with deep local insight.
WHY PARTNER WITH UK COMMUNITY FOUNDATIONS
30 years of
Recent government funded programmes
We have worked with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to distribute £20m of the funding raised on the ‘Big Night In’ to support communities affected by coronavirus and the Tampon Tax Community Fund which provided grants of up to £10,000 to run projects and services directly benefiting women and girls facing issues such as period poverty, domestic and sexual abuse, mental health and long-term unemployment. We also delivered the #iWill campaign, funded jointly by DCMS and The National Lottery Community Fund which sought to make social action part of everyday life for as many 10 to 20 year olds as possible by 2020.
“Community foundations have played such an important role during the recent crisis in distributing money from the National Emergencies Trust to local organisations.”
