Welcome To The Award Winning Community Foundation for Calderdale
Seasonal Greetings to all our members, supporters & donors. As in previous years we are making a donation in lieu of Christmas cards. Please click on the video to the left to see our special Christmas message…
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. We are governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees which provides leadership and has the responsibility of managing the endowment in an efficient and thoughtful way.
