Cripplegate Foundation discusses sustainability in funding

26 January 2018

The Institute for Voluntary Action Research has interviewed four charitable funders to find out what 'sustainability' means to them. 

Director of Cripplegate Foundation,  Kristina Glenn, Pears Foundation Director Amy Braier, Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust Assistant Trust Secretary Michael Pitchford and Director of Systems Change at Lankelly Chase, Alice Evans, discuss challenges around ensuring sustainability through grant funding:

Cripplegate Foundation takes a long-term view when awarding grants to organisations, something that is embodied in its commitment to offer core funding to organisations to ensure they have the necessary resources and capacity to support local residents. 

We also work to continually maintain our understanding of the demographic, social and economic context of the borough, and look to invest in organisations that are able to adapt their approaches to meet real need in their area.
