Who we are

Living in Cumbria has some serious upsides. It can also be tough. Really tough. The beautiful landscape hides intense poverty and lack of opportunity. Two things that fuel each other.

Cumbria has a strong history of community – people working together to face challenges. Cumbria Community Foundation exists to continue and build that.

We bring people who love Cumbria together to make our county stronger. So local people can meet the challenges they face and can achieve their potential.


The role

As a registered Charity we are governed by a Board of trustees. The board meets a minimum of 4 times a year with some trustees also serving on sub committees of the board which may meet up to 5-6 times/year. Trustees are responsible for setting the strategic direction of the Foundation, overseeing delivery of plans and also supporting the executive team with particular tasks where relevant. Trusteeship can be a significant commitment and this role is likely to equate to the equivalent of at least two days/month.

We’re currently seeking Trustees with the skills and experience to support the Foundation’s ability to grow the funds it distributes. In practice this will mean people with some or all of the following characteristics:

· A strong commitment to the purpose and priorities of the Foundation

· Confident and outgoing and comfortable talking about wealth and money

· Well networked with people of influence and wealth

· A personal involvement in philanthropy
