Our impact

We are the community foundation for London. We help you make a difference to London, where it matters most. We believe in the vital role local community organisations play in rising to London’s challenges. We also believe in the generosity and solidarity of Londoners wanting to make a difference to where they live and work. Our task is to champion local organisations by connecting funders to them, channelling funds to their work, and supporting them directly to be stronger.
