Kingston Charitable Foundation launched in January 2021, following 8 successful years as local community fundraising project, Love Kingston. During this time Love Kingston fundraised for and awarded 53 grants to local charitable organisations.
Kingston Charitable Foundation continues to build on the excellent reputation and heritage of Love Kingston. Love Kingston will remain our much-loved local community movement; part of Kingston Charitable Foundation, which will continue to grow the charitable fund, in-order to provide grants to charities, both now and into the distant future.
It has been over 2 years since we launched, years like no others, but through the adversity, the very best of human kindness and altruism has shone through; we have been reaching out locally to find who these local heroes, and small organisations are, that have been helping at the heart of our community to see how we can help them in the ways that they need.
We established our Grants Programme at launch and have awarded 70+ grants in the last 2 years.
By awarding grants, Kingston Charitable Foundation enables community groups and small charities to continue to deliver much needed services and support. “We are all stronger together” If you would like to help please donate today.Who have we helped and what do they have to say?
