Many Northamptonshire businesses wish to make a significant impact within their local community but may not know where to begin. Northamptonshire Community Foundation is the number one grant making charity in the county with which to start a rewarding donor experience. We're all about harnessing your passion to make a positive difference and guiding you through connecting with the causes you care about with a circle of like-minded businesses who want to give back.

With 23 years of experience in charitable giving and grant-making, we’re the team you can trust to create a real impact and we work with a broad and diverse range of fund holders and donors. We are a unique charity which promotes and manages local philanthropy. Our Corporate Giving Network is designed to help you achieve the greatest impact, supporting the communities and charities where you and your employees live and work.

Recognising the challenges of where best to place funds, the Foundation collaborates with The University of Northampton every three years to produce a Hidden Needs Report. This report serves as a valuable resource, identifying local priorities and challenges to award grants to local charities where they are most needed and can make a real difference.
