Rob Hull has been a member of the Foundation’s Board of Governors since 2008. He is a member of the Foundation’s Finance and General Purposes Committee, and Chair of the Board of Islington Giving.
We spoke with Rob about his 11 year involvement with the Foundation
What motivated you to get involved with the Foundation?
After meeting the Director of the Foundation, Kristina Glenn, I responded to an advertisement for new governors. It was a great opportunity to contribute to the borough where I have lived for over 35 years.
What do you think is important about the Foundation's approach to supporting local people?
Cripplegate Foundation knows the voluntary organisations in the borough well. It is prepared to work in partnership with other funders, and to make things happen when needs are identified that aren’t being met.
Islington Giving, of which I’m currently Chair, is a great example of this. We are working together with other foundations and businesses to make a real difference to many people’s lives.
