Help us make Kent and Medway a better place to live now and for the future
Our new Fund for the Environment brings together individuals and companies who are interested in a better future for all across Kent and Medway.
We believe that local community action can be at the heart of delivering valuable solutions which contribute to global strategies from the Government and United Nations aiming to lessen our impact on the environment – and importantly, also offer benefits that local people can reap in our own county.
In partnership with our donors and the local voluntary and community sector, our ‘Fund for the Environment’ will embody the ‘think global, act local’ sentiment and facilitate dynamic change by supporting projects which enrich nature, connect people with green spaces and enable more sustainable and healthier ways of living in Kent and Medway.

Gift Aid your donation
Gift Aid is a tax relief allowing UK charities to reclaim an extra 25% in tax on every eligible donation made by a UK taxpayer. So for every £1 donation Kent Community Foundation can claim back 25p.
What do you have to do?
Confirm whether or not you are a UK taxpayer. Please note that Gift Aid can only be reclaimed on donations made by individuals who pay UK income or capital gains tax at a rate at least equal to the amount reclaimed on their donations in the current tax year.
