About the Charity
The Cambridge United Charities (CUC) were formed to manage the properties and money that have been left to the people of Cambridge by local philanthropists since the 17th Century. In its present form, it dates from a Charity Commission Scheme approved in December 2014 which amends the Scheme of July 1970, although this in turn replaced the much earlier Cambridge Municipal Charities which had been operating from the mid-1800s.
The Charity does not actively fundraise, but seeks to continue the philanthropic work of the original benefactors through the careful stewardship of existing resources. It is registered with the Charity Commission, providing Annual Reports and Accounts which can be viewed on the Charity Commission website
