Investment in our communities

Community Foundations

Community Foundations

We encourage local charitable, community and environmental organisations who are seeking a grant to apply to one of our funds held with three community foundations across our northern service area.

Tyne, Wear and Northumberland Community Foundation
County Durham Community Foundation
Tees Valley Community Foundation

A panel of employees meet in February and August to review and make decisions on grant applications. Our funds look to support projects with a focus on health, education, sport, community and the environment with priority being given to projects in areas where we are or have been working.

In 2014 we gave out 36 grants totalling almost £24,000.
