The Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund was set up in 2010 to help grassroots charities tackling poverty, inequality and exclusion across the capital. Since its launch in 2010, the Dispossessed Fund has raised £18.02 million from the general public, business, Government, Comic Relief and the Big Lottery. This is the most money ever raised by a newspaper campaign outside of war or natural disaster. So far we have distributed £11.96 million in 1,117 grants, helping more than 150,000 people across the capital. £3.9 million of the funds raised is invested in an endowment. This will remain invested and the interest gained will be used to support community projects for years to come, creating a sustainable source of funding for London.

They work in partnership with London Community Foundation to distribute monies received to address issues identified by the Evening Standard’s Dispossessed Campaign and to grant fund community organisations undertaking charitable work in London.
