Know more about the Community Foundation

 As an independent registered charity, we are part of a national movement of community foundations that undertakes strategic grant making, facilitates philanthropy and contributes to achieving positive social change in our local communities.

Our ultimate vision is to drive as much investment into Lancashire's Voluntary and Community sector to enrich the lives of people in and around Lancashire and through them create united, thriving and prosperous communities.

We are delighted to be supported in our work by the national Community Foundation Network as well as the International Institute for Philanthropy to ensure the highest standards of community philanthropy advice, donor care, grant making and governance. These standards are further evidenced by our Community Foundation Quality Accreditation Standard Mark (2010 - 2013), which demonstrates best practice and standards (as endorsed by the Charity Commission).
