The passing of Her Majesty The Queen

The UK Community Foundations network pays tribute to Her Majesty upon the sad news of her death.

We at UK Community Foundations are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. 

Her Majesty’s life was typified by her commitment to public service and the advancing of good causes, both in the United Kingdom and around the world.

Hundreds of charities in the United Kingdom have benefited from Her Majesty’s patronage during her 70-year reign.  

This enormous contribution has touched the lives of millions, which was recognised during The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee earlier this year. We were proud to be a part of this celebration in her honour with the Let’s Create Jubilee Fund, supporting creative community projects and bringing people together. 
 
We offer our sincerest condolences to the Royal Family at this difficult time.

God Save The King!
