Heathrow Community Fund

The Heathrow Community Fund is an independent charity that receives funding from Heathrow Airport Limited, other companies on the airport such as John Lewis, Proper Oils, and other suppliers, and the noise fines imposed on airlines. We also have places in the London Marathon and Heathrow employees raise funds for us by taking part in events like the Midnight Marathon in which participants run a marathon on Heathrow’s runway.


We award funding to charities and community groups working to improve the quality of life of the communities in the 9 boroughs neighbouring Heathrow Airport ( Ealing, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Richmond, Runnymede, Slough, South Bucks, Spelthorne and Windsor & Maidenhead).


1.    Grants for Projects for Young People - grants of up to £25,000 per year for up to 2 years to support organisations working with young people to raise their aspirations, develop their skills for employment or increase their resilience.

2.    Environmental and Sustainability Grants - grants of up to £25,000 per year for up to 2 years for projects that help to protect the environment, encourage sustainable energy use in community buildings, provide environmental education, or open up community green spaces such as allotments or parks.

3.    Communities Together - grants of up to £2,500 per year for up to 2 years for smaller community focused projects that bring communities together or support particularly disadvantaged members of the community. 


Registered Charity Number: 1058617.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
