Cornwall Community Foundation
In 1998 a group of far-sighted people identified the need to give those struggling in the community a voice and to establish a source of funding for community self-help within Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. That small acorn grew to become the Cornwall Community Foundation in 2003.
Since 2003, the Foundation has awarded more than £9 million to Cornish communities, supporting more than 5,000 local, grass-roots organisations. In 2019 alone, £734,000 was awarded in grants to 539 projects across Cornwall to strengthen communities. We believe that grass-roots community groups have the power to change lives for the better. Our aim is simple, we bring together people who want to help Cornish communities with projects that make a real difference.
