About Us

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 grow stronger communities together.

We are delighted to be supported in our work by the national UK Community Foundation network 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 Mark, which demonstrates best practice and standards. 

Our Vision

Our vision is to enrich the lives of people in and around Lancashire and through them create united, thriving and prosperous communities.


Our Mission

Our mission is to provide strategic grant-making that meets the needs of local communities, placing us as the charity of choice for philanthropists and funding partners, and the primary grant-maker for local community and voluntary groups.

Our Strategic View

The Community Foundation for Lancashire understands the needs of local communities and donors and, by creating partnerships and involving donors, ensure that these needs are met. 

We continue to maximise the impact of funds and resources through our extended local and national networks, accessible grant programmes and efficient, cost-effective processes.
