Berkshire Community Foundation

Berkshire Community Foundation (BCF) raises funds for, and make grants to, local charities and community groups addressing identified need across Berkshire.  

We use our local knowledge to connect supporters to the groups and communities they want to help, making sure their donations are effective and bring the greatest benefit to those most in need.  Last year we gave over £1 million to a wide range of local projects, addressing issues such as child poverty, mental health, loneliness and isolation and homelessness. 

We work with supporters, large and small, to make sure their donation has the greatest impact.  This distinctive and personalised approach to philanthropy means many different kinds of people use community foundations to manage their funds including individuals and families, businesses, charitable trusts and professional advisors.

Our mission is to inspire philanthropy and charitable giving – connecting people, ideas, resources and needs to make a lasting difference.
