Aims and activities

Aims and questions

The Cornerstone Fund is a funder collaboration launched in 2018, which 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.

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