UKCF is a membership organisation of 47 accredited community foundations across the UK and 4 overseas members, which have collectively given out over £1.6 billion in grants to charities, community groups, and individuals. UKCF collaborates with local partners and national donors to give locally and on a national scale. They provide advice, learning, and resources to support members to deliver the highest standards of service to communities.

They promote the vital work of community foundations with the UK Government and other national stakeholders. They partner with clients who want to make a difference by developing grant-making programmes involving multiple community foundations.

What are community foundations? Community foundations come in all shapes and sizes, but what they all have in common is a commitment to making a difference to people’s lives in the places they serve. Community foundations are local champions, connecting people and organisations that want to improve their communities. Community foundations invest in local people and organisations tackling the biggest issues facing communities today and supporting some of society’s most disadvantaged people. Community foundations provide help and advice to those who want to give at the heart of their communities, both now and in the long term. They match donors and partners to important local causes.
