Camden Giving’s KX Fund
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.
The KX Fund aims to increase:
1. Social Cohesion
2. Employment opportunities
3. Quality and access to natural environments
Organisations who have previously been awarded a grant will be eligible to apply for a continuation grant. Projects must still meet one of the above aims.
Camden Giving’s KX Fund will soon open for applications. We expect to award grants in May 2019.
apply to be on the KX fund panel
We are now recruiting at least 2 community representatives from the areas affected by the Kings Cross Development to be part of the KX Fund grants panel. This is an exciting opportunity to play an important role in deciding how the funding should be invested in Camden.
If you are interested in applying for the role you will need to submit a CV and Cover Letter and Nomination Form. You will need 1 nomination from someone who can confirm your suitability to represent local community.
Deadline for applications to the panel will be midnight on 13th March 2019.
