London for All receives Ontario Trillium Foundation grant for evaluation project

London, ON – On Tuesday, June 18, United Way Elgin Middlesex will welcome members of the London for All Leadership Table to a grant presentation and discussion about evaluating the three year poverty reduction project. The event takes place at 5:45 p.m. at London Central Library, Stevenson & Hunt meeting room.

London for All, led by United Way Elgin Middlesex, has convened more than 150 individuals and organizations to implement a series of recommendations developed to end poverty in London in a generation.

The $48,000 Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) grant will be used to monitor and assess the outcomes of the project and evaluate the effectiveness of the project's leadership and accountability structure.

At the event, Local MPP Terence Kernaghan and a representative from OTF will congratulate United Way staff and the London for All volunteers on progress to date and highlight how London for All is already making a difference in the community.

"We have already successfully implemented more than half of the recommendations set out in the 2016 report. This work has improved the daily lives of Londoners living in poverty," says Kelly Ziegner, CEO, United Way Elgin Middlesex, speaking about the London for All project and its impact on the community. "The funding from OTF will provide our community with data and insights so that we can fully understand the effectiveness of the project."

The Ontario Trillium Foundation is an agency of the Government of Ontario, and one of Canada's leading granting foundations. OTF awarded more than $120 million to some 700 projects this year to build healthy and vibrant communities in Ontario.
