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.
London Funders will be running the a Festival of Learning from 12th – 19th May.
Open to all members, join us and The London Community Foundation on 19th May at 2.00pm to learn more about the strategic partnership, why the needs of Muslim-led charities existed prior to Covid19 and beyond and what’s next for supporting more of London’s diverse communities.
