This fund was established at the direction of City of London Council (January 1993) to develop a viable model for establishing a community heritage fund. London Community Foundation was selected to be the conduit to manage the endowment and application intake process. An ad hoc committee of the London Advisory Committee on Heritage (LACH) assesses the applications and allocates the grants annually. 

APPLICANT ELIGIBILITY NOTE:  At least one calendar year must elapse from year grant received. ie. 2017 recipients of a London Endowment for Heritage fund grant cannot apply in 2018.
