Impact & Influence

Kent Community Foundation has distributed over £30 million in grants and now provides financial support to hundreds of charities and deserving causes throughout the county each year.

Last year we distributed 560 grants to the value of £2.25million to small, local charities and individuals, where a modest sum of money can make a significant impact.
