Home Who we are Established in 1989, Gloucestershire Community Foundation is an independent charity and grant making body. We are one of 46 Community Foundations in the UK and work with donors to connect funds to local need, helping to overcome disadvantage in Gloucestershire. We have two main roles; to manage the funds of our donors professionally and to make grants to charities and voluntary orgnanisations in Gloucestershire. Our aim is to build a permanent and sustainable endowment for the communities of Gloucestershire. We are accredited by UKCF to standards endorsed by the Charity Commission.
