About Us.

 

We’re passionate about the West Midlands.

We care about the people and places here, no matter what area you live in and we want communities here to thrive, for people to be happy, healthy and live fullfilled lives.

What we do.

We seek money from people who want to make an impact and we award it to community and voluntary groups who need it. 

We champion local giving, building partnerships with likeminded organisations and individuals who care about the communities on their doorstep.

Working with our donors we use our research and expertise to invest in grassroots projects, funding fantastic ideas that enable our communities to thrive.

There are some 1,800 Community Foundations around the globe, each one providing services to donors and investing in local communities.

We are a member of UK Community Foundations, the national network for all accredited Community Foundations across the UK.

The network is responsible for distributing £77 million of funding annually, and together has endowment funds worth over £580 million.
