Cumbria Community Foundation

About us

Cumbria Community Foundation is an independent award-winning grant making charity dedicated to meeting the needs in our communities by assisting the work of charities and community organisations as well as supporting individuals in Cumbria.

Since the Foundation was established in 1999, more than £50 million has been given out in grants that have made a real difference to the most disadvantaged people in our county.

Those grants are made possible by our generous donors and fundholders: ordinary people and businesses who want to invest in and give back to their local communities.

We provide a simplified approach to effective charitable giving. As one of the UK’s leading, accredited community foundations, we have the expertise and local knowledge to help individuals, families, companies, charitable trusts and public-sector bodies invest in their communities.
