Nottinghamshire Community Foundation — Living by giving

Welcome to Nottinghamshire Community Foundation

To help build a better community you need a strong foundation.

Nottinghamshire Community Foundation (NCF) is an independent charity, set up to encourage philanthropy for the benefit of the people in Nottinghamshire. Our unique approach to philanthropy allows individuals and businesses to support their own specific local interests and causes and in doing so invest in the future of their community.

NCF acts as a “broker” between people who care about their local community and the wide range of voluntary organisations, community groups and local charities who do the hands-on work to make a real difference where we live.

  • Thank you again for your very kind award.  The fund has not only enabled me to purchase a variety of new materials, it has given me a huge confidence boost to push forward with my work and pursue my dream of becoming a working artist.
