  • Mission statement

    The Northamptonshire Community Foundation is a local, independent grant making organisation that provides a first class service to donors who want to channel their giving to the local causes they care about.
    We fund all kinds of community projects - including ones for older people, children and youth groups, schemes which develop the artistic and cultural life of the county and projects for people with special needs and other disabilities.
    To make suire your money is used to best effect we investigate areas of need, identify groups which match your charitable interests and monitor projects as they take effect. This saves you time and prevents your good intentions being wasted.
    Whether you want to make a one-off donation, leave a legacy or a gift of shares, set up a themed or named fund, we will make it easy and rewarding for you by offering a tailor-made service to match your needs. And if you'd like to assist our grants advisers in making the decisions we can involve our donors in deciding where the funding is directed.
