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 over £30 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 over 4,000 grants in partnership with those donors totalling £14 million to around 2,000 charities and community groups. £18 million is in endowment – a collective fund of money that will benefit Sussex people for years to come.

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