Community Foundations

Community Foundations hold a unique position in the beyond profit sector, fostering the relationship between funders and local charities with the aim of bringing communities together, funding great ideas and inspiring local philanthropy.

The ability to fund system change, champion local philanthropy at a national level, be catalysts for innovation and support essential local services makes their funding approach and insight truly unique and hugely impactful.

To be a truly effective funder not only requires great systems, but talented, knowledgeable and empathetic people who bring a clear understanding of the grant making process, in addition to a contextual local knowledge and an understanding of service delivery and impact.  

We have a strong track record of working with the network of Community Foundations across the UK, as well as the umbrella membership body, UK Community Foundation. In addition to this, we have worked with numerous Trusts, Foundations and other grant making organisations.

This experience has equipped us with a profound understanding of the needs, challenges and opportunities faced by grant makers across the UK and has resulted in a well-developed and substantial network of candidates with specific experience in grant making, project and programme design and fundraising in addition to the essential specialist local knowledge needed to transition into the Community Foundation network.
