Statement About Funding Decision

A statement regarding the decision of one of our members to suspend a recently awarded grant.


UK Community Foundations is proud to be working with Arts Council England to distribute the £4.5million Let’s Create Jubilee Fund to enable communities across England to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee through a variety of events and artforms. Our 44 community foundation members across England have received the applications for their respective areas and have the autonomy to allocate funding based on the needs and priorities of their local communities, within the agreed guidelines. More than 700 creative and artistic projects have been funded.

When the Let’s Create Jubilee Fund decisions were announced on Monday 11th April, additional information came to light about one of the funded groups and the London Community Foundation (LCF) took the decision to suspend the grant they had awarded to the LGB Alliance. The grant in question has now been formally withdrawn. This action has been taken because LCF was not informed of current proceedings in relation to LGB Alliance’s charitable status.
