What we are looking forward to in 2020?

Grace Perry, Executive Assistant and Office Manager

“I’m excited for the wide variety of events that London Funders will host next year. From bespoke funder forums to large annual conferences, no day nor event is the same. Furthermore, we are flexible and can adapt our work quickly to suit the ever-changing policy environment.”

Geraldine Blake, Director of Collaboration

“I’m looking forward to facilitating more funder collaborations – making funding fairer and more transparent across the capital. In particular we will be building on last year’s work on hot and cold spots and encouraging funders to proactively outreach in areas where there is high need but little funding”

Geraldine Tovey, Membership, Communications and Events Manager

“Getting out and about visiting our members is one of my favourite aspects of working at London Funders. From Hillington to Havering, it’s great to have conversations with our members in their own patch. Next year this is something we plan to do a lot more of.”

James Banks, Chief Executive

“There are so many interesting things coming up in 2020. For me a highlight is our Big Network Day, which is rapidly approaching on February 24th. Attended by over 150 funders last year, it really helps to build cross-sectoral conversations about how best we can support London’s communities. I’m also looking forward to our work on mayoral manifestos, championing diversity in the sector and match-making our members. More will be revealed soon. Watch this space!”
