Cumbria Community Foundation exists to strengthen communities by connecting people who care with inspirational, life-changing projects. We are also here to respond to emerging need.

We make much-needed grants to more than 500 community projects per year on behalf of our fundholders.

We provide a simplified approach to effective charitable giving. As one of the UK’s leading, accredited community foundations, we have the expertise and local knowledge to help individuals, families, companies, charitable trusts and public sector bodies invest in their communities.
