About us

Sussex Community Foundation is a not-for-profit charity that makes grants to other not-for-profit organisations across Sussex.

We raise funds for and make grants to other local charities and community groups across East and West Sussex and Brighton & Hove and have raised over £40 million to support Sussex communities since 2006.

Connecting our donors to the groups they want to support, we have given grants totalling £19 million to around 2,000 charities and community groups.

We have made a long-term commitment to Sussex and its people and £22 million is in endowment that will benefit Sussex people for years to come.
