About us

Gloucestershire Community Foundation is an independent charity established since 1989 and dedicated to strengthening our Gloucestershire communities.  We're part of a network of 48 Community Foundations nationwide.

The Foundation provides grants to local voluntary and community groups to help them build a stronger Gloucestershire and tackle modern social issues.  We work to help local people find local solutions to local problems - targeting grants that make a difference to the lives of people in our county.

Our Mission is simple:  to help overcome disadvantage in Gloucestershire.

We achieve this by providing strategic grant-making that meets the needs of local communities.  We aim to be the charity of choice for philanthropists and funding partners.

We're the primary grant-maker for local community and voluntary groups and we understand the needs of local communities and donors.  By creating partnerships and involving donors, we can make sure that these needs are met.

Our donors can specify how they want their money to be distributed and we can help them set criteria and give them advice on how to maximise the impact of their donation.

We have excellent grant-making and monitoring processes to ensure that grant monies meet real and identified need and are fully accounted for.
