Grants in Hackney

EECF has partnered with 20 Fenchurch Street to establish The 20 Fenchurch Street Legacy Fund with the aim of improving employment prospects and opportunities for people living in London’s most deprived areas.  The 20 Fenchurch Street Legacy Fund awards grants to high quality projects that will make a positive and long-lasting difference to residents in the City of London, Hackney, Newham and Tower Hamlets.  

Organisations may apply for up to £20,000 for one year’s funding towards projects that are supporting participants to gain essential employability skills, provide them with work or volunteering experience and ultimately move them into sustainable employment or self-employment.

GUIDELINES

The next application deadline is 12 noon on Monday 2nd October 2017. If you would like to apply please contact the EECF Grants Team on 020 7345 4444 to discuss your proposal.

Allen & Overy Ben Ogden Memorial Fund

The Ben Ogden Memorial Fund has been established by Allen & Overy in memory of Ben Ogden who was on his way to becoming a very successful solicitor. He passed his Legal Practitioners Course with flying colours and at the end of his two year training contract with Allen & Overy he was taken on in their employment and pensions department. It was during his qualification break that he tragically died in the Nepalese air crash on 28 September 2012.

East End Community Foundation is distributing grants of up to £2,500 on behalf of the Allen & Overy Ben Ogden Memorial Fund to improve access to and opportunities in education, employment and training for residents in the London boroughs of Hackney and Tower Hamlets.
