Propel is focused on putting money and power in the hands of communities who are best placed to make change happen.
Propel is a ground breaking funding collaboration that will, over the next ten years, give the capital’s civil society and communities the flexibility, trust and capacity to make long-term, systemic change in London. In April 2023 Propel made its first round of grants, awarding almost £25m to over 80 organisations across the capital.
Propel is and has always been about collaboration – recognising that the challenges we face are too big for any funder, charity or community to tackle alone. Our shared ambition is to build long-term collaborations that draw on the strengths and assets of us all so that, together, we can tackle the issues facing London.
Over the next ten years, Propel will provide flexibility and capacity to organisations led by and for groups experiencing structural inequality so that they can explore, develop and lead collaborative ways of tackling some of London’s biggest challenges. This includes providing support for young people, women and girls, LGBT+ communities, Deaf and Disabled people, and racially minoritised communities. Propel brings together a growing collaboration of funders of different sizes and sectors – both public and corporate as well as independent foundations- and is guided by our partnership of equity infrastructure organisations.
