2020 Summary Update
Published on January 13, 2021 by David Kennedy


Happy New Year from all the admins of the SE15 Community Fund

A heartfelt thank you for your support of the Fund. SE15 is getting stronger with each and every neighbour getting behind the fund and, going into 2021, we wanted to update you with the progress you have contributed to:

- Since May 2020, the fund has redistributed £10,273.04 to 57 different SE15 neighbours 

- December 2020 saw the highest amount of incoming contributions, thanks to some especially generous one-off donations as well as ongoing monthly support. This is really significant in helping the fund towards its goal of being self-sustaining, without dependence on grants.

- The fund was involved in a crowdfunder with 5 other solidarity funds across London, which successfully hit its target of over £10,000. The SE15 Community Fund received a proportional share of £1596 from this. Thank you to those who contributed. 

- We have received some crucial grants in 2020 and we would particularly like to mention Peckham Settlement who helped us distribute funds to neighbours and to publicise the fund, as well as another exciting project which we hope to announce soon :)

As always, please keep telling your neighbours and friends in SE15 about us, whether they are in a position to financially contribute to the fund, or if they are in need of support and want to access it. With yet another lockdown just starting, it's going to be a tough few months for many in SE15, and your continued support is ensuring the fund can support neighbours during these difficult times. 

We are always keen to know where people heard about us and would be grateful if you could spare 3 mins to let us know via this questionnaire here

Very best wishes,

The admin team at SE15 Community Fund
