Charity information

Community Foundation for Calderdale

The Community Foundation for Calderdale is a registered charity that manages and distributes funds on behalf of individuals, companies, charitable trusts and statutory bodies to meet the needs of people living in the Calderdale area.

By raising money, through its network of supporting 'members' and donors, and holding a long-term investment fund, the Community Foundation for Calderdale is able to address local need indefinitely - the interest gained on the invested money is given out in grants. This gives local people the opportunity to give to local causes, see where their money has gone and be able to contribute to a permanent pot of cash to benefit the community forever.

Grants this year have been given to support causes as varied as social clubs for elderly people, community recycling schemes, children's after-school clubs, community bands, sports clubs, refugee centres, and individuals in crisis. Our long-term investment fund currently stands at over £5. 7 million.
