MK Community Foundation
Milton Keynes Community Foundation is a local independent grant-making charity. We believe that a diverse, vibrant, well supported voluntary, community and cultural sector is the key to any thriving community.
With our donors help we transform lives and strengthen communities across Milton Keynes. In 2017-18 we provided over £1.9 million in grants to local charities and groups. See the grants that we have awarded.
Our Mission is to connect people with resources, skills and ideas to enrich lives and create positive growth for Milton Keynes. We achieve our mission through:
We support the growth and development of our voluntary community and cultural sector
We seek to inspire giving through philanthropy and other social action
We take a lead in connecting and growing sustainable communities
We welcome grant applications for projects that address community priorities in MK (see our vital signs report). Our grants and programmes provide several ways to help with funding your community group or project. We want to support you to grow and make Milton Keynes a great place to live.
