About Us

Help make a lasting difference in Suffolk

We are the largest grantmaker to the voluntary sector in Suffolk

Established in 2005, Suffolk Community Foundation is a registered charity and part of a national family of 47 community foundations across the UK.

We work closely with key stakeholders to increase understanding of need and raise essential funds to support local charities and community groups.

In partnership with Suffolk, we seek to rebuild local lives in a compassionate, respectful and sustainable way.

We do not compete with other local charities, but instead act as a philanthropic hub to channel funds directly to them.

Our Vision
