Cumbria Community Foundation
Cumbria Community Foundation (CCF) is an independent grant maker that provides philanthropic services to businesses, individuals, public bodies and charitable trusts.
CCF exists to tackle poverty and disadvantage and to strengthen Cumbria’s communities by inspiring philanthropic giving and by connecting people who care to causes that matter.
We have responded five times to emerging need in times of crisis by launching successful disaster and emergency appeals. Raising £10m in response to the flooding in December 2015 and distributing £3m
in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are currently Cumbria’s largest grant-making charity with annual grant distribution of £3m and endowed assets in excess of £27m. Since 1999, more than £56m has been awarded in grant aid through more than 100 grant-making funds. This has supported more than 4,000 organisations and 8,000 individuals.
