About Community Foundations

Community Foundations are the fastest growing forms of community philanthropy worldwide. They provide sustainable, long-term solutions.

Most of us grew up in a time when the government took care of social needs, education, housing and health. We all know this is no longer the case.

At the same time, many of us have the means and desire to do something for our community, to give back to the place which has been good to us, where we live and where we work, and where we have brought up our families.

Community Foundations are much more than a mechanism for giving away money. They are about working with and for the community, and connecting people with similar ideals.

Community Foundations are local organisations run by local people.  They can be flexible and responsive to both community and donor needs. They enable people to be involved in growth and development.

Community Foundations build permanent assets and resources that will benefit a community for generations to come.
