Our Impact

Lincolnshire Community Foundation was founded in 2002 and is dedicated to serving our diverse County, delivering positive environmental/societal change and, most importantly, positive outcomes for people and places.

Lincolnshire has a population of over 755,000, is the second largest county by area and includes a mix of urban, rural and coastal areas. We pride ourselves in engaging with communities at a grassroots level and our work is grounded in the value of #ChangenotCharity.

To date, we’ve distributed over £14M to charities, community groups and organisations from Grimsby to Sutton Bridge and Mablethorpe across to Grantham, with emphasis on small grants delivering a big difference.

These grants have helped groups tackle issues such as child poverty, loneliness and isolation, food poverty, homelessness, access to services, addiction, unemployment and many other unique and individual needs that exist across Lincolnshire’s places.
