Here for Norfolk, here for good

Norfolk Community Foundation is a charity dedicated to building stronger communities and improving the lives of people in Norfolk.

We bring people together who want to make a difference where they live — whether they step up to take action themselves, or support those who do with an investment of funding or time.

Supporting over 2,000 small charitable groups working on the ground, our work touches 1 in 4 people in Norfolk – from those dependent on local practical and social support, to whole communities benefiting from improved buildings and green spaces.

By bringing people together, we can do more. What can you do?

What others say

“The Norfolk Community Foundation has truly demonstrated its value and impact by being able to support those in greatest need. I am very proud to be the Vice President and to witness first-hand the difference it makes.”

Simon Bailey, Vice President of Norfolk Community Foundation

“I was immensely impressed by how rapidly Norfolk Community Foundation responded to my request to explore a collaboration. Everyone I have dealt with at the Foundation has been incredibly professional and displayed a brilliant can-do attitude.”

Sir Norman Lamb, Former Member of Parliament for North Norfolk

“During the Covid-19 pandemic the work of the Foundation has been deeply impressive, not least in the way it is trusted to receive donations and then to quickly get funding out to the frontline charities where it is most needed.”
