About Foundation for Future London

Funder, fundraiser, creative placemaker

Foundation for Future London is an independent charity established in 2015 created to connect communities, the new East Bank and its globally renowned arts, innovation and cultural partners. We want to ensure East Bank is London’s must-visit destination and becomes a resilient, thriving, world-class neighbourhood of local and global significance.

We’re fundraising to expand grant-making opportunities for East Bank communities and partners and facilitating creative placemaking, to support local places, learning, training and employment through arts, education, culture and innovation.

Our vision is for a vibrant and inclusive creative East Bank, creating authentic engagement with local people of East London in the boroughs of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

We are a part of the East Bank partnership, connecting local communities to the new centre of culture, education, innovation and growth being built on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London. We are also partners with Culture Mile and its organisations.

Our work is supported by East Bank’s Founding Partner and Official Sponsor, Westfield Stratford City, and City of London.

The Foundation for Future London delivers sustainable development and supports sustainability and net zero across all our work.
