2018 has been quite a year for the Foundation, with the launch of our £1 million match funding programme with Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust back in January as well as the re-launch of our social lending programme thanks to a boost of £500,000 from the Big Lottery late last year.

We reached a major milestone, distributing £30 million since our inception in 2001.

We also launched our new website and successfully delivered our core funding pilot which will be rolled out next year and will see the Foundation invest £1 million over the next three years for core activity.

Our 2017/18 annual review is also available to download from our website or please email admin@kentcf.org.uk to request a hard copy.

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.

Community chef Mike Spackman, Sheppey Matters

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.

Liz Turner, Octopus Foundation

It's great having a foundation that empowers organisations and charities in our community to make real positive differences and changes!
