The CN Group Fund was set up in 2000 with a donation of £100,000 by the Cumbria Newspaper Group to create a long-term capital fund that would benefit Cumbria. The fund is administered by the Cumbria Community Foundation.
The fund aims to support projects which support one of the Foundation’s aims:
- Tackling disadvantage in rural communities
- Tackling disadvantage in pockets of deprivation including the 20% most deprived wards
- Supporting disadvantaged children and young people
- Hidden and emerging need.
