Who We Are

Northamptonshire Community Foundation is a unique charity which promotes and manages philanthropy. 

We are the leading independent grant-making charity in the county and we are proud to have worked with our fund holders and donors to ensure projects make a sustainable impact on local needs, helping our donors make the most of their charitable giving.   

We deliver a variety of funding for the local voluntary and community sector awarding grants of over £1million annually.  We are dedicated to funding community-based action which improves the lives of our county’s most disadvantaged people and communities. Child poverty, unemployment, homelessness, domestic violence and social isolation are just some of the issues we strive to tackle each year. 

We are one of 47 Community Foundations across the UK which are playing a leading role in the development of community philanthropy and resources to sustain communities. For information and contact details of all Community Foundations and to find out about issues being addressed by the UK Community Foundations please visit their website.

With the help and support of our donors and partners we are able to help the communities where we live, work and play.  This Foundation is for the county of Northamptonshire.  All funding raised stays right here.
