Celebrations for our 15th birthday took place on Thursday 30th June at a garden party hosted by the foundation’s Chair Paul Southworth.
Friends of the foundation joined together to celebrate and wish Northamptonshire Community Foundation a happy 15th birthday.
We have been providing grants to local groups and communities in Northamptonshire since 2001. Over the last 15 years NCF has worked with families, individuals, companies, charitable trusts and organisations to support some of the most vulnerable communities in Northamptonshire. By working with community groups, individual and family donors and corporates they have made a huge difference across Northamptonshire; to individual lives, to communities and to the county as a whole. Since 2001 we have raised £9 million in endowment and supported 2,500 groups in the county.
Friends from past and present attended the party to highlight the our great work and to celebrate our success during our 15 year milestone.
The event also celebrated some of the groups we continue to support, music during the evening was provided by Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust and a special 15 year anniversary cake was made especially for the occasion by the ladies at The Good Loaf.
Victoria Miles, Chief Executive of the foundation said “We are delighted to come together with our fund holders and donors to celebrate 15 years of the foundation and we look forward to continuing our support to the amazing voluntary and community groups here in our County in the years to come.’
