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".
