Sharing with the press


If you share your stories with the press we ask you to include information about us. Below is the standard text about the Community Foundation which you should include in any media releases about work we have supported:


The Community Foundation matches generous people with important community causes. Every year, the Foundation award grants to hundreds of small charities in Tyne & Wear and Northumberland, and across North East England, through funds set up by a range of donors. The Newcastle-based charity, the UK’s biggest Community Foundation, has built an endowment of over £xx million to build a portfolio of funds that tackles the vital issues in our community. For further information please call Adam Lopardo, Director of External Relations on 0191 222 0945, or email al@communityfoundation.org.uk
