The Bromley Community Fund

The Bromley Community fund (BCF) is a charitable venture set up to support organisations across the London Borough of Bromley, responding over time to the changing needs and hardship of local people. 

Individuals, companies, public and voluntary sector organisations come together to channel their resources and talents to help people in the borough.

Local charities are at the forefront of tackling the greatest needs albeit some of these organisations go under the radar because of their size. BCF look to provide a valuable source of funding for these projects through an endowment fund. Through this BCF can make charitable grants year on year for the benefit of local residents. 

Working in partnership with The London Community Foundation, the fund primarily targets smaller charities who are responding to the most acute needs of the community. There is an emphasis on increasing educational achievement for disadvantaged young people, as well as supporting older people and their carers


BCF supports the fantastic smaller charities and community groups that work ‘under the radar’ to improve life for Bromley’s most in-need. These organisations do amazing work with very little funding, making every penny count. But in these tough economic times, they are struggling to keep up with increasing demand for their support. BCF is here to make sure they continue to form the bedrock of our neighbourhoods!
