The Cornwall Community Foundation is an organisation that aims to improve the lives of others in Cornwall, those who are isolated, disadvantaged and vulnerable.
As a foundation, we have the expertise and local knowledge to help donors support the local causes and charities they care about, enabling them to make an impact through their giving. We identify issues of importance to our donors and facilitate investment to grassroots, front line, volunteer led organisations on their behalf - making a real difference to people’s lives across Cornwall.
The CCF is affiliated to UK Community Foundations (UKCF) and is quality accredited to standards endorsed by the Charity Commission. UKCF as an umbrella organisation provides support and advice for the 48 Community Foundations in the UK. UKCF also represents the Community Foundations at a national level and help to channel funding from national organisations such as Comic Relief and Big Lottery.
As an independent organization, we rely on your donations to fund us and continue to develop, maintain and grow an endowment fund which will be capable of providing investment for community groups and individuals in Cornwall by:
Increasing the number and volumes of donors.
Providing an honest, open and accessible grants process.
