Helping people thrive


We make giving easy, rewarding and above all effective – using your gift where it can make the most impact and helping you get closer to the East End.

From local community groups to multinational businesses to passionate, motivated individuals, there are loads of inspiring people who want to make a difference to the East End. They want to increase opportunities, improve lives and strengthen communities.

We know, because we share that aim. We know, because for the last 25 years, we’ve been helping bring these different groups together, and this is how we work.


Whether you want to give time, money or opportunities, at the East End Community Foundation we’ve got the commitment and connections to make sure your involvement goes further.
