20 Grants to Celebrate 20 Years

For Community Foundation in Wales’s 20th birthday they are offering an additional 20 grants of £1,000 each from our Fund for Wales to small, volunteer-driven community organisations across Wales.

As they mark our 20th year they want to celebrate the vital work that happens in communities across Wales thanks to the dedication and endeavour of volunteer-driven organisations.


The recipients of the special 20 grants will be announced at our birthday event in Cardiff on Monday 16th September.


They welcome applications from projects that aim to deliver the following outcomes:

  • Improving people’s chances in life
  • Building stronger communities
  • Improving rural and urban environments
  • Encouraging healthier and more active people and communities
