London Community Foundation exist to help develop strong and connected communities. They do this by inspiring individual and corporate philanthropy – as well as public sector funds – to invest in London’s grassroots charities. The Foundation has unrivalled access to small charities and community groups across London and their role is to inspire London’s wealth to support them. Having now made grants totalling £80 million since their founding in 1995, the Foundation has seen their annual grant awards grow from £60,000 to £9.5 million over this period.
Chair and Trustee
London Community Foundation now seeks to grow the size of their Trustee Board to greater reflect their role in London’s communities. This is still an exciting time of growth for the Foundation as they continue to make more grants than ever before and this year are establishing a pro-bono advisory network to strengthen their reach into the City and its leaders.
The Board of London Community Foundation seek to recruit a new Chair and Trustee to support the continued ambition of the foundation in inspiring the Capital’s generosity and investment in frontline, grassroots community organisations.
The Chair will lead a motivated and collaborative board, bringing with them strategic vision and gravitas whilst being willing to take an active role in business development and donor engagement.
The Trustee will bring senior level experience within either a grantmaking or commissioning organisation, ideally with experience in areas of need relevant to the work of London Community Foundation.
Both Chair and Trustee will be deeply invested in London, its diversity and its communities.
London Community Foundation is committed to achieving greater diversity in its board, and welcome applications regardless of sex, gender, race, age, sexuality, belief or disability.
