Capital Fundraising Appeal

Toynbee Hall regeneration

Capital Appeal

To ensure that Toynbee Hall remains at the heart of our community for the next 130 years we are undergoing a major regeneration of our East London site which will transform our physical and operational infrastructure. The capital build began in summer 2016 and will be completed by spring 2018.

The key reasons for this capital regeneration are:

  1. To preserve and share our rich history
  2. To improve the services we deliver and innovate new solutions to poverty
  3. To increase our financial sustainability

Our site will consist of three key elements that achieve these ambitions; the Centre for Wellbeing, the Centre for Advice and the Centre for Learning and Heritage based in our historic buildings

Why we need your support

This is an ambitious but essential capital project. The total cost is £16.7m. Toynbee Hall is contributing £10.5m from the sale of several assets, and we will be borrowing £2.5m. The remaining £3.7m will come from our capital fundraising appeal. Of our capital fundraising target, we have £304,000 yet to raise.

Thank you to all who have contributed to the redevelopment already. A list of our supporters is available here
