Why work with Kent Community Foundation?
We make giving easy and fun! We identify the causes you are interested in and use our local expertise and network of contacts to put you in touch with fantastic local causes. Thanks to our research into the needs of the county and relationships with charities and community groups across Kent and Medway, we can often find wonderful grassroots projects, operating below the radar, where a modest sum of money can make a huge difference.
We review, monitor and evaluate diligently on your behalf so you can have full confidence in our grant making.
What’s great about Kent Community Foundation is that it ensures that we are helping genuine cases of need. The team has put us in touch with causes that we would never have come across because there is such a wide range of needs that exists in our community. We have been able to help so many children and families whose brave and inspiring stories couldn’t fail to move you. It is incredibly rewarding for us to see first-hand the impact of our giving. It makes us realise how fortunate we are and what a great privilege it is to be able to reach out to help others in this way.Paul Rooney, The Rooney Foundation
