Community Foundations Network

We help individuals, families, entrepreneurs, companies, charitable trusts and public sector bodies connect with, support and invest in their local communities right across the UK.
What is a community foundation?

A community foundation is a vehicle for charitable giving. Community foundations work with individuals, families and companies to design bespoke grant making strategies that target particular issues or focus on particular geographical areas. There are 48 accredited community foundations in the UK.

What is UKCF?

UKCF is the umbrella organisation for all community foundations.  We quality accredit our member community foundations to standards endorsed by the Charity Commission and provide advice and support. We also provide philanthropic advice to donors and work to deliver UK-wide fundraising and grant making programmes through community foundations.
