Giving & Philanthropy

Supporting mental wellbeing, alleviating loneliness, tackling the causes of youth crime, helping vulnerable families, improving community spaces – these are just some of the key issues facing our local communities.

Over 4,000 small charities and voluntary groups across Norfolk are working on your doorstep in every neighbourhood to tackle these issues. However, these vital groups remain reliant on grant funding and other support to continue their essential work.

We connect people who care with local causes that matter. By giving to Norfolk Community Foundation you can ensure that these small charities receive funding and support so that they can continue and grow, providing essential care, support and opportunity for the most vulnerable in our communities.

Why are we best placed to help with your giving?

Led by our knowledge and insight, we can advise you on how your giving can make the most difference locally:

  • We offer a range of simple ways to give
  • We’re a trusted partner to share knowledge and expertise to inform your giving
  • Join a community of Norfolk people who share your passion and commitment
So let’s get started. Get involved and transform lives in Norfolk today.

“I initially became involved with Norfolk Community Foundation through membership of the Norfolk 100, and was so impressed with the Foundation’s work that I was inspired to do more. My strong affiliation to Thetford and the surrounding area drove me to set up a Fund to help improve the lives of those who live there. The Foundation, with its reach and connections, makes a real impact across Norfolk, always ready to listen and tackle the issues to improve local lives. I am now proud to be the Vice Chair of trustees, working to ensure that we continue to help where the need is greatest.”

Jo Pearson, Vice Chair of Trustees
