Northamptonshire Community Foundation is a local, independent grant making organisation, which provides a professional philanthropic service to its donors.
The Foundation's vision is to create a culture of giving that strengthens and supports the local community.
Through an understanding of local needs, the Foundation uses funds to make grants that support a variety of projects and activities, securing the future for generations to come.
Our strategy for 2016-19 is based on the following theory of change:
If we grow our endowment and increase our revenue, make best use of our local funding knowledge and expertise of the communities we serve, provide a voice for those we fund, enrich the giving experience for philanthropists, whilst being cost effective with all of our resources, then we will better serve our county's communities now and for generations to come.
