For more than 20 years the Community Foundation for Merseyside has helped donors achieve their strategic charitable giving by supporting local causes that matter to them, where there is most need and where it will have greatest impact.
That legacy encompasses the distribution of more than £41 million in grants to exceptional local charities and grass root community groups – many of whom are often overlooked when individuals and organisations think about giving to charity.
Among the many local projects supported by this funding have included facilities providing a lifeline for domestic abuse victims; centres seeking to address the region’s ongoing homelessness crisis; recreational clubs providing a much-needed outlet for young people in disadvantaged communities.
The Community Foundation has responsibility for managing funds for Jamie Carragher’s 23 Foundation, the Liverpool ONE Foundation, Hill Dickinson and Peel Ports, along with the High Sheriff and Merseyside Police Charitable Fund and Nationwide building society amongst others.
The Community Foundation for Merseyside is a part of the UK’s network of Community Foundations that promote local giving to address local disadvantage, connecting donors with deserving causes with a focus on delivering a lasting, sustainable impact. A registered charity, CFM is based at the Stanley Building offices at Liverpool ONE, which have been generously donated by the Grosvenor Liverpool Fund.
