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.

Don’t miss out on £500,000 of FREE money thanks to the Localgiving.com Grow Your Tenner Campaign

If you have a Localgiving website but you have let your registration lapse or you have never signed up to Local Giving before, we are organising a special event on Thursday 4 September at the 1855 Building opposite the Eureka Children’s Museum; hosted by senior CFFC and Local Giving staff.

At this event you can hear presentations on how Local Giving works, how the Grow Your Tenner campaign will work and receive some great tips on how to market your new or refreshed Local Giving website. after the presentations there will be a short workshop showing people how the web pages for each group are set up and an opportunity to sign up to LocalGiving.

As part of our pledge to support groups in Calderdale we have put funding in place to cover the £70 registration cost for each Calderdale group and this will be released as soon as groups attract £70 of donations through their website before or during the campaign.

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
