About us

At Sussex Community Foundation, we are all about a long-term commitment to Sussex and its people .

We raise funds for and make grants to local charities and community groups across East and West Sussex and Brighton & Hove. We’ve raised a total of £20 million to support Sussex communities since 2006. We manage funds of money on behalf of Sussex donors, connecting them to the groups and communities they want to support. We’ve given almost 3,000 grants in partnership with those donors totalling over £8 million to more than 1,500 charities and community groups.

Steve Manwaring from Hastings Voluntary Action explains what Sussex Community Foundation does and why our work is so effective.
