UK Community Foundations
UK Community Foundations (UKCF) is the membership organisation for the 54 community foundations around the country, 42 of which are quality accredited. They cover almost the whole of the UK - most people are only 20 minutes away from a community foundation-funded project. Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and almost every county in England are represented by a community foundation.
Community philanthropy involves people from all parts of a community working together locally to use the financial and other resources available to them to improve others' lives.
UKCF also has a role as national membership association for community foundations which encompasses negotiating and managing national grant-making and funding opportunities on behalf of its members and providing direct technical assistance to member community foundations through its network. As a membership organisation its work is governed and directed by a board drawn from its members.Quality Accredited
