About Us

Building communities from the ground up.

Norfolk Community Foundation is an independent local charity helping ordinary people do extraordinary things that make our local communities thrive, and improve the lives of people who live there.

We provide local funding and support that ensures that small local charities and voluntary groups can continue and grow, providing essential care, support and opportunity for the most vulnerable in our communities.

All funds raised are invested in Norfolk to make a real difference to local lives. Led by our local knowledge and insight, we direct support to where it is most needed.

How we help

We invest in local charities:
We encourage local giving:
  • A trusted partner to share knowledge and expertise to inform your giving
  • A range of simple ways to give that maximise the impact of your gift
  • Join a community of Norfolk people who share your passion and commitment

“Unfussy, un-invasive courteously-worded, accessible, timely support – at a time of great local and community need. A model for grant-giving.”

“How could there be anything but positive! You watch over us, give us opportunities and a sense of being accountable, we can tell you our worries and the things that make us proud. We would never have got this far without your help, and something which began and still focuses on work in Norwich and Norfolk has now been taken up to help vulnerable people much further afield, even internationally. Thank you!”
