About Us

We inspire people to give, help Welsh communities to thrive and change lives together.

For over twenty years, Community Foundation Wales has been supporting charities and community groups with funding to strengthen communities across Wales.

Since 1999, we have awarded over £40m in grants to grassroots community groups and charities across Wales.

We work with our generous supporters to reach the people most in need and help to create equality and opportunity in Welsh communities.

There are over 30,000 community groups and charities in Wales working to improve and develop their communities, using their initiative to meet local needs. These groups and charities understand the challenges faced by people in their community and know how best to tackle these barriers.

This vital work is often carried out on a shoestring budget or voluntary basis so we focus on finding these fantastic projects and organisations, understanding what they are trying to accomplish and supporting them to do so.
