Welcome

Cambridgeshire Community Foundation is part of a worldwide charitable network of community foundations. We aim to build stronger communities in the county of Cambridgeshire by making it easier for donors to give and connect to local voluntary and community groups that are addressing the issues that impact people's lives.

What is a Community Foundation?

This wiki definition sums it up nicely

Community foundations are "instruments of civil society designed to pool donations into a coordinated investment and grant making facility dedicated primarily to the social improvement of a given place. Community foundations are a global phenomenon with 1,700 existing around the world of which over 45 are in the UK".
