Our democracy is only
as strong as we are.

We’re only strong
when we’re organised.

The Civic Power Fund is a new charitable fund that will support community organising, and build the infrastructure and leadership it needs to thrive.

Civic power is the capacity of citizens to organise, mobilise, and effect change.

Too many of us feel powerless to change the things we care about. 

A thriving democracy means citizens working together to identify problems, co-design solutions, and win change.

Community organising is essential to this, so that local communities have the power to take action on the issues that matter to them.

That’s why we started the Civic Power Fund.


We are the first donor fund dedicated to community organising. We will provided targeted long-term funding in key geographies across the UK.


We are governed by movement builders, with board members drawn exclusively from leaders of social purpose organisations.


We work with organisations as partners, employing a trust-based and participatory grantmaking approach.

Civic power enables us to build a more just society, where every person and place can achieve their full potential.
