Aims and activities

The Cornerstone Fund is an ongoing, collaborative funding programme developed in 2017 to bring about systemic change, enabling civil society support organisations to work in partnership with others to achieve the goal of: “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.

Without collaborating, the ambition of our goal would simply be impossible, because systems change needs collaboration.
