KCF returning to the office and community visits

See more

We’re pleased to announce that the KCF team is back in our Ashford office. To ensure that we can continue to work safely, we have a maximum number of staff in the workplace at any one time so that we can maintain social distancing and follow COVID-19 safe measures to protect ourselves and one another.

We are also very pleased that we are able to resume community visits again. We’ll be prioritising meeting organisations we’ve not funded before, but happy to visit any group that would like to meet face-to-face and show us what it is they do. We will be strictly adhering to social distancing and taking precautions to ensure we do not put either ourselves, you or your beneficiaries at risk.

See more about our visiting guidelines.

MASSIVE 'thank you ' to everyone at Kent Community Foundation. Your funding support is HUGELY appreciated and has enabled us to get into the heart of local communities with REAL, affordable, healthy and tasty food that does so much more than feed people.

KCF's enthusiasm for what we are doing and hoping to do, coupled with helpful advice, gave us the confidence to take this daunting step which has paid off.
