IN 2015/16 EECF...








Howard Dawber Chairman

Tracey Walsh Chief Executive

The east end of London is such a vibrant and creative place to live and work but the social needs here remain some of the highest in London and the UK. As an ambitious and fast growing philanthropic foundation with a focus on uniting donors in order to better support those most in need, I continue to be delighted with the progress we make. By actively encouraging philanthropy amongst individuals and companies we have distributed our highest level of funding to date to local organisations, an increase of 78% on last year which is a great achievement. We have also implemented a new monitoring and evaluation system so that we are better able to demonstrate to our donors the impact their support has on those most in need. Supporting donors to collectively invest in the community is a key focus of EECF’s work as we believe that positive social change is best achieved when working with others. A good example is the innovative partnership we have established with the 20 Fenchurch Street Partnership and the building’s tenants and service providers. The initiative gives them all the opportunity to work together to address unemployment locally, and to achieve more than they could alone. The Fund is also a great opportunity for the community to secure funding to deliver high quality projects for a diverse range of beneficiaries. More information on the fund can be found on page 7. To conclude our successful year we were delighted that the London Borough of Tower Hamlets liberated S106 planning gain monies ring-fenced for EECF to establish an endowment for community investment. Special thanks go to Mayor John Biggs and the Planning team for their support. As always I want to express my gratitude to the Board of Trustees and the staff team for their tremendous efforts throughout the busy but rewarding year.

I always look forward to the time when we prepare our annual report as it is a great opportunity to reflect on our achievements. In 2015/16 not only did we distribute our highest level of grants to date – £830,000 – to organisations delivering strong and effective community initiatives but we also: published the latest round of our Vital Signs research, received long awaited S106 monies to create an expendable endowment to bolster our grant making activities and held a successful business breakfast in the beautiful Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street, which led to the creation of a fund targeting unemployment. More information can be found on page 7. The impact of our grant making is clear to see throughout this report, with personal stories from just a few of our many beneficiaries, that I hope you find interesting and engaging.


FLEXIBLE GIVING For over 25 years East End Community Foundation has worked in partnership with donors to invest in key local community projects.

Individuals or Families

We can help you channel your philanthropic giving to the areas and issues you are passionate about.


We identify key local community projects for you to support through donations or volunteering to complement your local corporate social responsibility programmes.

Public bodies and statutory organisations

We have years of expertise in managing Section 106 agreements and working in strategic partnership with councils and other public bodies to stimulate change.

Trusts or Foundations

Whether you want to work together to maximise impact, reduce administration through outsourcing or transfer your assets to create a lasting legacy, we are here to help.


Whether you wish to distribute funding for immediate impact or establish a long term legacy, EECF has a giving programme that is right for you.

Distribute funding for immediate impact

You can chose for your donation to be made available for immediate spend, usually awarded in grants over a 12-month period.

Establish a long term legacy

You can choose to contribute to an endowment, a permanent charitable resource that grows through your support. Your donation is invested and the dividend generated used for grant making year on year.

Grow your donation by up to 50% We have launched a unique Endowment Match Programme making ÂŁ1 million worth of match funding available to new and existing donors who choose to set up a new, or contribute to one of our existing, endowments. You could boost your donation by up to 50%.

WITH EECF Our professional team will help you set up a Donor Advised Fund which matches both your needs and those of the local community, maximising the value of your donation.

Direct your giving to support a particular organisation, borough or social issue

You can choose to give to support a particular charity or community group, focus your giving on a specific area or cause or make your donation available to projects identified by EECF to be most in need. You can top up your fund with a regular or one-off contribution.

Pool your giving with other donors for greater impact

Working in partnership and giving collectively with other donors increases your donation’s impact and reach, enabling you to fund a wide range of grassroots community projects. Find out more about our local giving funds on pages 10-11.

Create a bespoke philanthropic giving programme

EECF will work with you to create a bespoke giving programme based on your charitable or business interests. You can be as involved as you want in the grant-making process and have the option to visit projects and review applications with your own funding panel. See what other donors have been able to achieve on pages 6-9.

Fight for Peace helped make my dream a reality and gave me the opportunity to finally go into the industry I have always dreamed about being in, but never thought would be possible.” Patience* Passenger Service Agency Training Participant, Fight for Peace Shortlisted for interview at London City Airport


PARTNERSHIP IN ACTION “The 20 Fenchurch Street Legacy Fund has already made a real and lasting difference to people from some of the most deprived areas of London. Together we have already supported 79 local people into employment and we look forward to continuing the positive impact on the local community.”

he innovative 20 Fenchurch Street Legacy Fund was launched in July 2015. EECF worked with Canary Wharf Group and Land Securities to establish a bespoke philanthropic giving programme which pools contributions from multiple donors including building occupiers, service providers and visitors to the 20 Fenchurch Street building’s Sky Garden. Donations support a grants programme to tackle issues of unemployment and are also invested in an endowment to create a lasting legacy for East London. Using our expertise and local knowledge we visit local charities to compose a shortlist for the Fund grants panel. The panel composed of major donors then review our recommendations and make the final decision about which projects to support. We have been blown away by the success of the programme; the partnership was shortlisted for the Charity Times Awards 2016 Corporate Community Local Involvement Award after distributing £96,000 in its first year to community projects, helping 79 local residents into work. A full list of grants awarded can be found on page 13.

DONOR ADVISED FUNDS: MATCHING “Lendlease is delighted with our partnership with EECF. They have been thoroughly co-operative and professional in managing our fund and have really strong connections with local charities, so advertising the fund in the communities around our development has been really effective.” Jason Vincent Community Development Manager – IQL Development, Lendlease

n 2015 multinational property company Lendlease established their community fund to support local people living in the area surrounding their International Quarter development at Stratford City. Their philanthropic fund promotes active and healthy communities in Stratford and New Town, West Ham and Forest Gate. EECF helped Lendlease identify key three local issues to support – health & wellbeing, arts & culture and education & learning – responding to feedback from the community as well as statistical data. Throughout the year, we support Lendlease by assessing applications for support from local projects, presenting recommendations to the Lendlease grants panel and reporting back on activities taking place.

One project supported by Lendlease was Salmagundi Films who delivered an intergenerational digital arts project with 50 residents from the E15 and E20 postcodes. The sessions helped build community cohesion and reduce social isolation for the area’s most vulnerable people.

“I am going to come to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park all the time now – my Mum will be jealous of my trip round the park!” Salmagundi Films Project Participant


Harry, an elderly person living with dementia, attended the project with his wife of 51 years, Margaret. Both used new technologies and visited the Olympic Park for the first time. Margaret says the project helped her open up about living with Harry’s illness, meaning she “felt closer as a community group and met lots of new people”.

YOUR NEEDS WITH COMMUNITY NEEDS “Ben cared enormously about the world in which he lived and especially those people whom he came into contact with. Even though Ben was humble about his pro-bono and community work he was passionate about helping others and we are so proud that his legacy can live on through this important memorial fund.” The Family of Ben Ogden; parents Andy and Pat, sister Amy and partner Stephanie

en Ogden was on his way to becoming a very successful solicitor, he passed his Legal Practitioners Course with flying colours and at the end of his two-year training contract with Allen & Overy he was taken on in their employment and pensions department. However, during his qualification break he tragically died in the Nepalese air crash on 28th September 2012. Without interfering with the success of his studies and training, in three years Ben contributed a huge amount to the community through charity and pro bono work. In 2015 Allen & Overy established the Ben Ogden Memorial Fund to continue Ben’s legacy of support, providing grants to voluntary and community organisations across Hackney and Tower Hamlets with a focus on improving access to, and opportunities in, education, employment and training.

LOCAL GIVING FUNDS: COLLECTIVE A local-giving fund which combines donations from a wide variety of donors including trusts, residents, businesses and philanthropists to support a range of small, local community organisations. As rates of unemployment and mental illness are significantly high in Hackney, the fund prioritises helping local residents get into work and training, improve their wellbeing and take part in community activities.


ith the support of our partners, and thanks to donations raised through a live crowdfunding event Hackney Giving awarded £108,164 to 25 community organisations from across the borough this year. We have ambitious plans to further expand the programme and help even more local residents and invite you to join the partnership to make this vision a reality.

Statistics show Hackney is one of the five worst areas in England for child obesity; but when you’re on a tight budget, it can be difficult to plan how to provide healthy and nutritious food for your family. Bags of Taste used their Hackney Giving grant to deliver two food courses for people in food poverty, to improve their wellbeing, teaching them to shop, cook and eat better for under £1 per portion. 52 local people took part after being referred by the Jobcentre, local food banks, learning disabled services and housing associations. By the end of the course 84% reported increasing their consumption of vegetables and 74% said they were saving on average over £10 a week on food, about £600 per year!

GIVING FOR LOCAL COMMUNITIES A local-giving fund which combines donations from a variety of donors to support a range of small, local community organisations. As the borough has a significantly young population Newham Giving prioritises supporting positive school holiday activities, with fantastic results. Since launching in April 2014 Newham Giving has awarded £136,000 to local projects and engaged 2,000 children and young people.


enerous donations from major donor, Northern Trust, and fund partners Berwin Leighton Paisner, Clifford Chance and Tate & Lyle Sugars meant we were able to grow the grants programme in 2015 by 52%. The expansion of the programme was a great success with more people benefitting. Positive school holiday activities can help young people reduce antisocial behaviour, increase personal development and improve motivation to engage in learning at school. In 2016 we aim to build upon the success of this great programme by expanding to cover half term activities.

Looking after an ill or disabled family member is tough, especially when you are only 12. Yet this is the reality of daily life for Hassan, who looks after his father, who is blind. Thanks to funding, Hassan was able to have respite time at a Create Arts summer holiday workshop. He said: “When I come here, I stop thinking about stuff at home… When you’re caring for your parents, you’ve got to care for them full time. You can’t go out. With this, you can socialise with other people who understand, and because you have more in common, you can make more friends.”
