The London Community Foundation
They are The London Community Foundation, the charity for London's grassroots. They specialise in supporting community-based organisations focused on helping disadvantaged London.
They're passionate about London, its people, its communities and its vitality. But they also know that it's a place that can exclude and marginalise. They believe grassroots organisations hold the key to improving the lives of the most disadvantaged.
By shining a light on the key issues faced and supporting the best ideas to grow, they strengthen and nurture the network of local people solving local problems.
Their mission is to help small grassroots organisations grow, by supporting them with crucial funding as well as advice. They believe in sharing their knowledge to help people improve projects, so they make an even greater impact. They work with all kinds of groups - from employment support services to educational centres and homeless shelters, to name just a few.
Their knowledge of London’s communities and the challenges facing them helps them change lives.
They’re here to inform their donors and partners, working in partnership to champion the projects their communities need. This means spotting bright ideas that make a big impact, so they can confidently invest in work that's truly effective.
