Muslim Charities Forum & The London Community Foundation Strategic Partnership 2020-2021
In August 2020, MCF partnered with The London Community Foundation (LCF) in a two-way learning project to encourage more Muslim-led charities to apply for grant funding. The London Community Response Fund (LCRF) by London Funders, a collaboration of over 60 funders in response to the needs emerging from the Covid19 pandemic, opened Waves 4 and 5 of funding in December 2020 and January 2021. MCF worked with LCF to discover the barriers preventing Muslim-led charities from applying, work with them to resolve these and support them in making applications to the LCRF.
