County Durham Community Foundation works with individuals, families, charitable trusts, public sector organisations, and companies, to run a wide range of grant-making funds. Each fund is unique, and tailored to the needs and wishes of the fund holder. The pages in this section should give you an idea of how we could help you with your charitable giving, no matter who you are, and what your level of giving is.

Most of our work is with fund holders who want to make a difference in County Durham and Darlington. However thanks to our expertise and the wide reach of UK Community Foundations we can also help local people who would like to give their support regionally, nationally or even internationally!


“I could not have done with my charitable investment what I have done with the County Durham Community Foundation. Their expertise and advice is second-to-none.”
