We are the only place that brings together public, private and independent funders to discuss and act on issues facing our city.
From the arts to zoos, and from Barking to Barnet our members invest in every aspect of London’s life. They support the capital through grants, commissioning, social investment and more, as well as directly to Londoners.
We’re here to enable funders from all sectors to be effective. We’re focused on collaboration – convening funders to connect, contribute and cooperate together, to help people across London’s communities to live better lives.
The need for London Funders
London is a complex city and its funding landscape is changing dramatically. This change is being driven by a combination of factors including the redefining of the role of the state (both national and local), the changing profile of poverty and the needs of the population within London, and the increasingly complex governance and public policy landscape that our members operate within.
Other regions and countries in the UK have particular needs and disadvantages but in London their scale and complexity are masked by areas of extreme affluence. Funders need to know about how policy affects the capital and how funding can be developed to meet the diverse needs of London’s communities.
