About us

At MK Community Foundation we’re driven by our ethos of Funding Fairness.

Funding Fairness

MK Community Foundation is a leading grant-making charity sending funding where it's needed most in Milton Keynes.

With so many vulnerable, isolated and disadvantaged people in Milton Keynes we’re proud to be leading the way in supporting community projects and charitable activities to help create a fairer more connected community.

Here at MK Community Foundation, we’re dedicated to making a difference and improving the lives of people within the local community by supporting a diverse range of projects.

But we can’t do this alone.

We rely on your donations, kindness and generosity so that we can continue to guide businesses, philanthropists and charities to the right giving and grants.

We're on a mission for a fairer community.

Our Value Statements


  • Fairness We seek detailed understanding to make the right decisions
  • Assistance We share our expertise and referrals for those who need advice
  • Inspiration We communicate our unique proposition passionately and with hope
  • Reliability We deliver what we say, when we say

Our Strategic Goal is to build a resilient, creative, inclusive and philanthropic community.

Transforming lives and strengthening communities

We provide a range of grant programmes to support everyone from small grassroots groups right through to larger organisations working in the voluntary, community and cultural sector across MK.

We make it easier for local people to support the whole community, by donating as individuals, families and businesses.

We make it easy for Charities, Community and Voluntary Groups to apply for funding and support from us.

Vital signs

Vital Signs® MK is an annual publication which reviews the current research on the issues facing the communities of Milton Keynes and presents it in an easy-to-read summary of a much longer report.

MK Community Foundation continues to host a series of Vital Thinking events in collaboration with our local partners and community groups. These events address the causes and impacts of the issues highlighted by the report.
