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.
