Community Funds

Responsibility to the Community

Community Funds

We want to ensure that the community benefits as much as possible from its proximity to London Stansted as a major international airport. We work with the community in schools, education, sport, employment, skills training and other projects that have a real impact on people’s lives.

Over £100,000 was donated to over 100 local community projects and initiatives in 2015/16 through two categories of funding: 

Stansted Airport Passenger Community Fund

Stansted Airport Passenger Community Fund donates money (up to £1500)  to local causes within a 20 miles radius of Stansted Airport. The money donated by the committee is raised from passengers' and staff's unwanted foreign currency which is collected in the terminal. Consideration will be given to requests from sports clubs, pre-school nurseries, junior sports clubs, brownies, guides, clubs, elderly and animal charities.

Stansted Airport Community Trust
