Kent Community Foundation (KCF), their friends and supporters, celebrate the Foundation’s recent successes and share their plans for the future during their biennial dinner at Leeds Castle.

KCF supports hundreds of grassroots charities and deserving causes throughout the county each year, improving the lives of local people and communities, particularly the most vulnerable, isolated and disadvantaged. They do this thanks to their growing network of generous donors and fund-holders.

During reception drinks in the Castle Library, Chief Executive Josephine McCartney opens the evening by welcoming guests and thanking supporters of KCF.

Peter Hardy, spoke warmly of the important role the Foundation plays in local charitable giving in Kent and Medway, emphasising the long-lasting benefits of Endowment Funds.

After dinner in the Henry VIII Banqueting Hall, the Chairman of Trustees at KCF, Tim Bull highlighted the amazing work taking place around the county and encouraged guests to consider supporting the Foundation and taking advantage of the Colyer-Fergusson match funding programme.

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