    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    In the early hours of Wednesday 14th June, the residents of Grenfell Tower were awoken to a massive fire which engulfed their home.

    In this tight-knit community, many families have lost everything they own, whilst others have lost their lives. Others no doubt will have lost family members, friends and colleagues.

    My school's website can confirm that I am an employee there, for anyone with concerns over the authenticity of this page: http://www.kensingtonaldridgeacademy.co.uk/grenfell-tower-justgiving-page/

    The money raised will go to the residents of Grenfell Tower and will hopefully, even in some small way, help them with whatever they may need in the aftermath.

    Thoughts and prayers to everyone affected.

      It is really comforting to know that once it is all established in the coming days, people of Grenfell will be able to start applying for grants and will be offered a bespoke service to meet their needs. Very soon Family Action will release a statement with more information. Thank you all again so much.

      Dear Donors, First of all thank you all so much for your initial donation and continued support. We were desperate to ensure the money was distributed to those who needed it, but we had to do it properly. We have decided to release the entire fund to Family Action, who have already been offering grants to Grenfell victims. After considering their proposal, it is clear that they will make sure the goals of the fund raising are met. What we will strive to achieve is support for the community in the long and short term.

      Hi everyone, I had a great conversation with the Director of Crowdfunding at Just Giving last week. He was really helpful and the process of releasing funds will be much easier than I has previously been told. I am in discussion with one particular charity and obviously once things are finalised we will be able to inform you of what's happening. It's all really positive. Thank you!

    I am the Y8 Director of Learning at Kensington Aldridge Academy and the local community have been devastated by this awful fire. It is a really close-knit community and the trauma will be felt for years to come. I'd like to help in any way possible.
