We are delighted that SEGRO, a long-time partner of The London Community Foundation, has launched a new £10 million Centenary Fund to celebrate the 100th anniversary of SEGRO’s establishment.
The Fund will be used over the next decade to make a positive impact within communities in Europe and the UK, including in London. The majority of the first year’s funding of more than £1 million will be allocated to projects across the UK which provide emergency relief, and which will help address the longer-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The London Community Foundation is managing grants distributed to London-based organisations, with £250,000 available in 2020.
Nearly £100,000 has already been deployed to 13 grassroots charities to fund essential emergency support for vulnerable people. This June, LCF is inviting selected employment-led or homelessness-focused charities previously funded through the Fund to apply for grants to meet the needs of their clients through the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
Further COVID-19 response funding is available from The London Community Foundation and 50+ other funders via the London Community Response portal.
