Looking back over our pandemic response
Find out how we helped unite our donors and supporters with the communities that needed them.
More than £ 1,888,936 of Covid-19 funding has been awarded to 411 projects with almost 311,000 beneficiaries.
There are 34 wards in County Durham and Tees Valley classified as ‘left behind’; 24 of those wards received over £250,000 in Covid-19 relief funding.
Almost one third of organisations that received funding from County Durham Community Foundation were managed by one staff member or entirely by volunteers.

County Durham Community Foundation is committed to transparency and we work with 360Giving to publish information about our grants.
Using the 360Giving data standard, our awarded grants to groups can be viewed as Excel spreadsheets: COVID-19 Emergency grants here
Between 1st April 2020 and 31st March 2021 we awarded 1,253 grants to groups and individuals totalling £4,945,774. These can be viewed below.
We believe that with better information, grant makers can be more effective and strategic decision makers. 360Giving provides support for grant makers to publish their grants data openly, to understand their data, and to use the data to create online tools that make grant making more effective.
