Quartet Community Foundation (QCF) is one the UK’s leading Community Foundations.  With a permanent endowment of £23 million, last year alone we distributed grants worth over £2.7 million to more than 950 different organisations across the West of England, making a real difference to the lives of those most in need in our community.
