About us

Who Are We?

We make a difference to the lives of Londoners by connecting people who need help with those who are willing to give. That’s what we do.

The London Community Foundation are dedicated to improving the lives of London’s most disadvantaged. Child poverty, unemployment, isolation, homelessness, domestic violence and gang crime are just some of the issues we are tackling through our grant making.

With the generosity and involvement of our donors, we have invested over £55 million into more than 11,500 charitable projects across the capital since we started in 1995. Last year alone, we made almost 1,000 grants touching the lives of over 100,000 Londoners. You can give to London through us or apply to receive a grant. We are YOUR community foundation: please join us.

Who Do We Support?

We support a huge range of charities and community groups across London. We specialise in funding smaller organisations that do not attract mass public support.

In our 22 year history, The London Community Foundation has awarded more than £55 million in over 11,500 grants to charities and community groups working across London. We strive to make the grant making process as fair, supportive and accessible as possible with a community development ethos underpinning our practice. We give to a wide range of registered charities and community groups, but prioritise community based projects and small and medium sized organisations for funding.

Over the years, The London Community Foundation has supported a diverse range of projects. Our work has ensured groups - environmental groups, employment schemes, mentoring for young people, homeless shelters and day centres for older people - can carry on providing their much needed services. We also fund activities supporting particularly disadvantaged and marginalised communities, and organisations tackling challenging issues, such as domestic violence and honor killings.
