What we do
The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland is a local, independent charitable foundation. We help communities in need, drive social change and change lives through impactful grantmaking and delivering innovative programmes.
Supporting bespoke giving and providing philanthropic advice we are a trusted, secure means through which donors choose how, when and where to give and we provide a range of management and grant making services for charitable funds.
In the last 3.5 years, the Community Foundation has allocated over £20 million in grants to communities throughout Northern Ireland. Amongst many, grantees include older people’s groups striving to reduce poverty and address isolation, youth organisations helping young people to develop employable skills, and women from disadvantaged backgrounds needing support to build confidence and a better future for their families. From large grants to help set up local community centres to small grants to simply help people pay for new clothes for a job interview, the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland is giving grantees the tools and support to change their lives day after day, year after year.
Gifts in Wills
After taking care of your family and friends, you may wish to consider leaving a gift in your will to the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland. Our work is driven by our vision of a peaceful, inclusive and equal society in Northern Ireland. Since 1979 we have been a force for positive change in the most deprived and segregated communities across Northern Ireland.
Your gift will play an important part in enabling us to respond to the challenges that future generations in Northern Ireland will face and will be directed to those areas and causes that are most important to you and which match your own particular interests.
