  • Since 2011, The London Community Foundation has invested over £75 million into charitable groups across London.
  • Today, the Foundation invests around £7 million annually, giving out around 1,000 grants every year across the capital.

The Mohn Westlake Foundation is pleased to be working with The London Community Foundation (LCF), which specialises in supporting community-based organisations focused on helping disadvantaged London by raising funds from institutions and individuals to invest in local charities and social enterprises. The London Community Foundation believes that communities often characterised as poor and disadvantaged are rich with ideas and assets, and when these ideas and assets are maximised, small community groups can make a big difference.


The Mohn Westlake Youth Achievement Fund, managed by LCF, will provide multi-year grants to small organisations working to improve skills and opportunities for young people under the age of 24. The Mohn Westlake Foundation will also work in partnership with other donors to support organisations tackling youth violence as part of LCF’s Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund Save London Lives initiative.
