About The Fund
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 £12.2 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 £6.6 million in grants to 745 groups, helping more than 120,000 people across the capital. The rest of the funds raised have been invested into 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.
