The Community Fund

The Community Fund

In the heart of community-driven philanthropy, powered by the collaboration between The Leys & St Faith’s Schools Foundation and Wesley’s Chapel & Leysian Mission, the Community Fund supports positive change.

The true essence of the Community Fund lies in its commitment to projects that radiate benefits across the community spectrum. From supporting arts-based therapy for children struggling with their emotional wellbeing, to enabling more young people to engage with the Cambridge Literary Festival, each project funded becomes a chapter in the story of community resilience and joy.

In 2023 The Community Fund supported a vast array of projects, from Blue Smile who support children’s mental health and Touch of Sparkle who provide care packs to cancer patients at Addenbrookes, to CamRARE who support people in Cambridge with rare diseases and Home-Start Cambridge who help families with children under five who might be struggling. And many more!

"Touch of Sparkle is a volunteer-run charity project … we are very grateful for this opportunity which has really taken the pressure off the admin side and allowed us to focus on providing more patient care.”
