Our impact over the past year

Thanks to generous individuals and organisations who share our vision of a better quality of life for all across Cambridgeshire, we are able to award millions of pounds each year to non-profit organisations at the heart of our community.

Over the past year, we have secured greater funding for Fenland, health and wellbeing projects and those affected by the high cost of living.

Funding for local community projects

We offer grants to charitable and community projects that contribute to a better quality of life across Cambridgeshire. Supported causes include mental health, homelessness, employability and much more.

Our grants fund a range of projects, big and small. These include targeted local projects that donors may not otherwise hear about.

We aim to match projects to suitable funding and offer support to grant applicants from application through to reporting.

“The Foundation’s funding is essential to many charities across Cambridgeshire. The application process is not onerous, and the support is always there from the team. I can only speak highly of the approach and support that the Foundation has shown to The Prospects Trust over the years, and I know we are just one of many charities that feel grateful. From £3k to £50k, every penny has been maximised and so much achieved.”
