We are the hub for community philanthropy in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough – inspiring and supporting effective giving that strengthens communities and enriches local life.
Our objective is to make a real difference to the well being and quality of life of people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. We do this by matching those who want to give, to local charities and voluntary groups that are of interest to them. In this way we have enabled funding to reach a wide range of community groups and environmental projects, as well as the homeless, people with special needs and disabilities, children and youth groups.
Since 2004 we have distributed over £6 million in grants and built a unique knowledge of local charitable projects. This expertise has been recognised by the Lottery, National and local Government, Comic Relief, and household names such as Mars and Microsoft, all of whom have commissioned us to distribute money on their behalf.
Our supporters, who include private individuals and companies such as Cheffins, Ridgeons, Marshall, Mills & Reeve, Bidwells and AmeyCespa (previously Donarbon), have chosen CCF to help with their charitable giving for a variety of reasons. Some wish to keep their identity private, others wish to cut down on the administration time and the majority seek our knowledge to inform where the needs are greatest.
