Supporting Local Groups

Welcome To The Award Winning Community Foundation for Calderdale

Our mission is "To improve the lives of people in Calderdale by raising and distributing funds, using our knowledge of local communities and working with others to target actions that will make the most positive difference". The Community Foundation for Calderdale is, in effect, a local charity for local charities. We work with our partners (individuals, families, businesses and other organisations) to create charitable funds which we then manage to support the community causes we all care about. With the help and generosity of hundreds of local partners we have created a permanent endowment of more than £8m. The income generated by that endowment helps the people of Calderdale today and will continue to do so tomorrow and for generations to come.

Property investment forms part of an overall investment strategy where approximately two thirds of CFFC’s endowment funds are invested within a balanced portfolio managed through Rathbones and the remaining third invested in local property; which equates to approximately £2 million.

The key objective for CFFC investing in property is to generate another strand of income through generating rental income from mainly voluntary sector tenants to further the work of CFFC through its grant making in Calderdale. View our properties here
