Funders and friends of HostNation
We are very grateful to the Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer Pro Bono Team for their legal support, to the Paul Hamlyn Ideas and Pioneers Fund for funding our start up, to The London Community Foundation for awarding us a Comic Relief Core Strength Local Communities Grant and to Trust for London for funding our core costs through a Connected Communities grant 2018-2020.
In 2019 we acheived another successful grant bid from the National Lottery Community Fund and ended with a social prescribing grant from Team London and the Mayor of London's office.
Since 2020 the Paul Hamlyn Foundation have funded our regional expansion. Trust for London have continued their core funding for a further three years and The National Lottery/DCMS provided emergency Covid-19 funding through the Coronavirus Community Support Fund (CCSF). City Bridge Trust granted us three years of funding for our London programme (2021-2023) whilst in 2022, Garfield Weston Foundation and the Headley Trust provided unrestricted core funding. In Sept 2022 the University of Manchester Business School chose HostNation for pro bono consultancy from their new cohort of MBA students on their not for profit module. In 2023 The Henry Smith Charity confirmed 3 years of core funding and City Bridge Trust continuation funding of our London programme until 2025.
Thank you to all our funders for believing in us and the work we do, and to the following people for giving us especially generous financial support or the benefit of their expertise (or both!):
