About Us

Welcome to Heart of England Community Foundation

Heart of England Community Foundation is a registered charity and the leading, independent grant making foundation in the West Midlands and Warwickshire. Since 1995, we have proudly awarded over £35 million to over 7,000 great causes across the region.

We believe in a fairer, happier and healthier Midlands – where everyone has equal access to opportunities, experiences genuine wellbeing, and enjoys a healthy and active life as part of their community.

We nurture philanthropy, connecting people who care, with incredible causes that matter. We help to unlock the resources to tackle local issues and to support people and communities to thrive across the region.
