A Message from The Cambridge

The Cambridge Community Fund is how we at The Cambridge Building Society make a difference. To us it means finding new ways to help people have a home. We do this by thinking differently to help those who can’t afford to buy, and by working differently with community partners to improve access to shelter and housing. 

The Cambridge Building Society Community Fund is there to support people who need a helping hand through the giving of grants. We know a little financial help can sometimes go a long way. So when times are tough, you can turn to us.

Examples of Funded Projects
