Thank you for your interest in applying for a grant from Cornwall Community Foundation. You are in good company as we awarded more than 680 grants to community groups during 2023 amounting to £2.9 million.

Our grants programme

We have approximately 70 different programmes funded by a number of philanthropic donors, businesses and statutory partners including Cornwall Council, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Integrated Care Board, and Devon & Cornwall Police. Each fund offers grants to a range of community groups and organisations, and each has their own priorities, criteria, and application form.

Not all funds are available at all times, but those that are currently open and available can be accessed here.

We have temporarily closed the general Expression of Interest portal whilst we process the existing enquiries and applications at this busy period. If your request for funding is urgent due to timescales of delivery, please contact a member of the grants team by emailing We aim to welcome expressions of interest again in the new year, if not before. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
