20th Anniversary

County Durham Community Foundation provides grants that make a genuine difference to the lives of local people. We manage charitable funds donated by local individuals, families, businesses and trusts, building up a source of long-term support for the community and acting as the vital link between donors and local needs, enabling people to achieve far more than they could by themselves.

We are dedicated to helping communities grow by creating opportunities and tackling issues of disadvantage and exclusion.
