Every year County Durham Community Foundation has worked with philanthropists to channel donations to small, local charities and individuals.

Whether grants are awarded to help those who are most vulnerable, improve health & wellbeing or keep communities safe, County Durham Community Foundation works to ensure every donation makes a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged people across County Durham and Darlington.
