The Cornerstone Fund

Aiming to bring about systemic change in support for London's civil society organisations

Basic information


The Cornerstone Fund is a funder collaboration, launched in 2018, currently involving City Bridge Trust, the GLA, the National Lottery Community Fund, Trust for London and the John Lyons Charity.

It aims to bring about systemic change, enabling civil society support organisations to collaborate to achieve a thriving civil society that is adaptable, resilient, collaborative, sustainable and driven by communities, with a focus on tackling deep seated structural inequalities to improve outcomes for Londoners.

The fund has appointed Collaborate CIC as a learning partner. Details of funded partnerships and learning reports from Round 1 of the fund are available here.

Further information about Round 2, which is currently in progress, can be found here.


Get involved

This collaboration is open to other funders interested in supporting London's civil society infrastructure, who may wish to join it.
