Spreading Love Across Kent For Ten Years

In 2022 The Loveday Family Fund is celebrating ten years supporting vulnerable, disadvantaged, and marginalised children and young people.

The Loveday Family Fund is one of eighty philanthropic Funds administered by Kent Community Foundation which support grassroots charities, community groups, families, and children. In the last ten years the Fund has distributed £188,800 to good causes.



The Fund was set up by the Loveday family in 2012 to support vulnerable, disadvantaged, and marginalised children and young people in Kent. Over the last ten years recipients of their funding have included The Kent Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre, The Alkham Valley Community Project, The Blackfish Academy of Performing Arts and What’s Coming Out of the Box, and it is estimated that the Fund has touched the lives of  over 21,000 people.

Josephine McCartney, Chief Executive, Kent Community Foundation, said, “The difference The Loveday Family Fund has made to the lives of children and young people in Kent is vast. It’s important that we  talk about the people behind the money because without them, we don’t have a Foundation and without the Foundation we can’t distribute money to good causes. Kent Community Foundation creates a link between philanthropists like the Loveday family  and those in the community who need support. We assist businesses and families, who are able and want to help, to manage their charitable giving by establishing a Fund with us. It is then our role to link the donors to the grassroots charities, community groups, families and children who need help.”

About Kent Community Foundation

Grant-maker Kent Community Foundation has been finding, funding, and supporting some of the smallest voluntary organisations in the county for twenty years. In this time, it has distributed over £45 million to support thousands of small charities and deserving causes where a modest sum of money can make a significant impact.

They are part of a UK wide accredited network of forty-seven Community Foundations who are committed to improving the lives of local people and communities, particularly the most vulnerable, isolated, and disadvantaged by matching those who want to help, with those who need the help.

Responsible for more than eighty philanthropic funds, Kent Community Foundation is unrivalled in its knowledge of local causes and assists individuals, families, and businesses, who want to help, to establish and administer their own charitable funds.
