£100K fund launched for crowdfunding projects tackling poverty

17 Mar 2017 Funding

Major London funders Trust for London and City Bridge Trust have joined forces with the Social Innovation Partnership to launch a new £100,000 fund available to organisations using crowdfunding to raise funds for projects tackling poverty and inequality.

The Improving life for Londoners fund will provide up to 50 per cent of the target (to a maximum of £10,000), with projects expected to raise at least the first 25 per cent from the crowd.

The fund is keen to support charitable work that:

  • provides practical solutions to support people on low incomes
  • addresses local problems in creative ways
  • is led by communities that will benefit from the work.
