What is The Connolly Foundation?

The Connolly Foundation is a major charity in Bedfordshire that has given more than £5 million to local causes and organisations since it began 14 years ago.

The Foundation awards grants in two specific areas:

  • Education
  • Support for the frail and elderly

Since 2007 numerous individuals, group and projects have benefitted from the Foundation’s support. It works mainly through charitable organisations, to control its costs to ensure that money is spent on projects and not overheads.

Supporting the Coronavirus emergency

The Connolly Foundation has given substantial monies to support organisations in Bedfordshire and Luton affected by the Coronavirus outbreak.

The Connolly Foundation UK receives it’s funding from the shareholding it owns in Connolly Homes PLC bestowed upon the charity by Michael Connolly. Connolly Homes builds houses and develops land.

In the coming years we expect the assets of the Foundation will exceed £100 million, increasing our charitable into projects in Bedfordshire.
