Who We Are

Forever Manchester is the Community Foundation for Greater Manchester.

We are the charity for people with a passion for Manchester and we want to put money back into our communities so that we can all be proud of where we live.

We raise and distribute money to support local people and groups trying to make a positive change in our neighbourhoods across Greater Manchester.  Without funding these groups and projects would struggle to get off the ground or simply cease to exist.

Our vision is to build a £50 million infinity fund to ensure that the fantastic communities in which we all live can be served forever.

But we need your help!  Through generous donations and plenty of fundraising we can support communities across Manchester now and forever.
