The Acorn Fund for Youth at London Community Foundation supports and provides funding for youth-related projects and initiatives in London and Middlesex County.

This fund was established in 1998 with initial funding from the Community Fund and from the Greg Brydon Memorial Trust Fund at Thames Valley.

We invite you to consider applying for a grant if the project addresses one of the Vital Signs issue areas and involves youth between 14 to 24 years of age in one or more of the following ways:

  • Youth helping youth 
  • Youth helping the community 
  • Youth being helped by the community

The Foundation's Youth in Philanthropy Committee is responsible for awarding Acorn grants. Generally, the grant amount is a maximum of $1,000.
