The Wimbledon Foundation is the charity of the All England Lawn Tennis Club and The Championships. Building on the success of an extensive programme of community and charitable activities over a number of years, its mission is to help improve people’s lives using the resources and heritage of Wimbledon. One of its principal objectives is to make a real contribution to meeting social needs in the local community.
Our partnership with the Wimbledon Foundation began in June 2014 with the launch of the Wimbledon Foundation Community Fund. Distributing £125,000 annually over two rounds, the aim of the Fund is to benefit the community and provide support for local organisations to meet social needs in Merton and Wandsworth.
Since launching the Wimbledon Foundation Community Fund we have awarded over 100 grants to organisations throughout our local London boroughs. We could not have done it without the valuable experience and local knowledge from the team at The London Community Foundation. We very much value our longstanding partnership.Helen Parker, Foundation & Community Manager
