  • Mission statement

    Our vision is Making Cheshire Better. Our mission is to strengthen and enrich Cheshire communities by inspiring, managing and directing local philanthropy so that it has the most impact in areas of greatest need. Cheshire Community Foundation helps people who want to give back to the places in which they live and do business by connecting them to the local community and helping them invest in that community in an intelligent and impactful way. We serve Cheshire East, Cheshire West and Chester and Warrington as a partner in philanthropy and a resource in community development. We promise to connect local philanthropists with local causes which will benefit Cheshire for years to come. We promise to make philanthropy rewarding, enjoyable and hassle-free and to engage local philanthropists in a meaningful and long-term relationship with their local community. We promise through our grant making to help Cheshire communities help themselves to become more cohesive and sustainable. We are passionate about Cheshire; the place and the people. We value Cheshire philanthropists. We listen to the motivations and interests of those philanthropists so that we can best serve them in supporting their communities. We listen to the needs of Cheshire communities so that we can guide local philanthropy to where it can have the greatest impact. We are friendly and approachable both as philanthropy advisor and grant maker. We are collaborative and seek to work in partnership across the county.
