What IS a community foundation?

Community foundations are an international movement and there are 47 in the UK  looking after every corner of the country. Working in specific geographic areas, they connect philanthropic people with local causes that matter to them. They build endowments and generate funds to support community needs and local organisations making a difference.  Community foundations offer grant-making programmes funded by donations from individuals, families, businesses as well as grants from other bodies, such as the Government.
