Personal giving

We work with you and your family to help you make a difference in London

The London Community Foundation helps you give in a way that works for you. Whether you would like to make an instant impact on a particular issue, or need support with a long-term giving programme, we can develop a community giving programme to suit your needs. 

Choose the cause that means the most to you

The London Community Foundation specialises in reaching under-the-radar community groups and projects. We know the organisations creating a positive difference in London and we can help match your interests with needs on the ground. We work with you to not only create or contribute to a fund that meets your aims and objectives, but also create real social impact by targeting your philanthropic support to where it’s needed most.

You will be involved in the decision-making at every stage. You decide who you want to fund.

Together, we have the power to strengthen communities and change lives.

Decide how you would like to give 

The London Community Foundation offers a variety of giving solutions. Choose from a bespoke fund suited to your goals or pool your resources with like-minded donors. You can even create an endowment to leave a legacy for future generations.

Focus your energy on what matters most

Your generous giving should be as easy and effective as possible. That’s why, as your partner, we use our expertise to:

  • Undertake all necessary due diligence and carry out assessments so you can rest assured your generous donation will be well looked after.
  • Remove the administrative responsibilities associated with setting up a private foundation, including activities related to the management of assets, and selecting and administering grants.
  • Provide opportunities for you to engage with the charities benefitting from your fund.
  • Articulate the impact of your giving.
LCF’s expertise and knowledge has been invaluable in helping us to understand the needs within our area of focus and identify projects for funding. It's been a privilege to visit the organisations that we support, to learn more about their work and see how our grants make a difference.
