Royal London Foundation
About the Foundation
Established in 2011 to mark our 150th anniversary, the Foundation ran until 2020, providing valuable grants to support the core work of community groups nominated by members. Through the Foundation, we were able to help organisations that had a local impact – the often unsung heroes whose work makes such a big difference to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.
- Through the Foundation we donated over £1m to local organisations across the UK.
- This included more than £800,000 in grants from 2017 to 2019, as well as a £500,000 donation to the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal in 2020, when we decided to redirect our Foundation funding to provide vital help to people during the coronavirus outbreak.
