Grants Director & Deputy CEO
Is there an issue that you or your business feel passionate about in your local community? Whether you are an individual, company, charitable trust or statutory organisation we can help you make a lasting impact.
Through our impact work, we are able to share with you insights and highlights into the value and demonstrated difference that your donations and grants are making to our County and local communities within.
Since 2011 Northamptonshire Community Foundation has been directly involved in developing and piloting a successful impact assessment tool on behalf of UK Community Foundations, the national network of Community Foundations. The result of this development work is a framework for providing compelling evidence of the impact of donor investment in community grantmaking.
We are able to provide impact case studies across individual awards and donor programmes. The themes, outcomes and indicators of the framework enable us to capture the kind of change that community groups and local charities are achieving and we’re able to track transformation and communicate this to current and potential donors and the wider community.
Northamptonshire Community Foundation also works in partnership with local infrastructure organisations to better support the groundwork for voluntary and community activity to thrive in local communities. This helps create opportunities for new groups and projects to help provide local solutions to the issues that affect our communities.
