Donate to CAfS so that we can do even more to reduce Cumbria's carbon footprint and make life here that little bit more sustainable.

You’ll be supporting our practical projects that improve life for people across the county, while protecting the environment for the future – whether it’s installing draughtproofing kit for vulnerable people, being a trusted source of independent advice for communities and residents or running events to give people the skills and motivation to make changes in their lives.

Why donations make a huge difference for CAfS

  • Donations allow us to do all the things that we can’t fund through grants

  • Almost all our money (99.5%) comes from grants or services we deliver. It’s for very specific work, so it’s a challenge to do other things that would make life more sustainable in Cumbria.

  • We receive no core government funding
