about Camden Giving's kx fund

Camden Giving's KX Fund exists thanks to a partnership between King's Cross Limited Partnership (KCCLP), the London Borough of Camden and Camden Giving.

Camden Giving created the KX Fund following a significant contribution from KCCLP, which is responsible for the development of the King's Cross Estate. The aim of Camden Giving's KX Fund is to ensure that those who live, work and play in the Borough of Camden benefit from changes to the local area.

Camden giving's kx fund 2018 applications

Applications for up to £10,000 will open on the 3rd April 2018 and close at midnight on the 7th May 2018. Projects should mitigate against the Kings Cross developments by:

  • Creating greater social cohesion
  • and/or reducing isolation of individuals or communities
  • and/or improving air quality/the natural environment

Projects must primarily benefit communities around the Kings Cross development (in the wards of Kings Cross, Somers Town, St Pancras, Bloomsbury, Cantelowes, Regents Park, Holborn and Covent Garden). Priority will be given to applications benefiting communities in Kings Cross, Somers Town and St Pancras.

We welcome applications from charities, small un-constituted groups and social enterprises. Applications can be made for project costs, "core" costs and capital costs (or a combination).

Funding is for 1 year.

We provide 121 advice about applications call us on 07717595605, attend our drop-in events or email grants@camdengiving.org.uk.
