BERKSHIRE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
We raise funds for, and make grants to, local charities and community groups addressing identified need across Berkshire.  

We use our local knowledge to connect supporters to the groups and communities they want to help, making sure their donations are effective and bring the greatest benefit to those most in need.  Last year we gave over £950,000 to a wide range of local projects, addressing issues such as child poverty, mental health, loneliness and isolation and homelessness.

OUR VISION

A strong generous community in Berkshire where people work in partnership to enhance the quality of local life.

OUR MISSION

To inspire philanthropy and charitable giving – connecting people, ideas, resources and needs to make a lasting difference.
