About us

Run for London!

The London Marathon is the world’s largest annual fundraising event. With professional athletes to fancy dress fundraisers running the famous 26 miles from Blackheath, through the City of London to the historic finish line in the Mall.

We ask each of our runners to raise £1,000 to support our work helping London’s community groups and charities and we’ll support them every step of the way.  The money raised will help us carry out vital work transforming local communities across London.


About The London Community Foundation

We support London-based organisations with crucial funding as well as advice, sharing our knowledge to help improve projects, so they make an even greater impact.

Our grants are typically made to small charities and community groups who understand issues at a local level, but whose existence is generally below the public radar. Grants can address a range of community-related issues such as:

  • Food poverty
  • Isolation
  • Homelessness
  • Domestic abuse
  • Violence affecting young people

To date, we have raised over £100 million to support London’s grassroots and community groups across the capital. You can learn more about our impact here.
