Cripplegate Foundation & Islington Giving

In 2010, Cripplegate Foundation brought together local and national organisations to establish Islington Giving, to act on the findings of our ‘Invisible Islington’ report, published in 2008.

Cripplegate Foundation chairs the board of Islington Giving, which has raised almost £6million since 2010. We manage and finance all the operational work underpinning Islington Giving, meaning 100% of donations to Islington Giving are awarded as grants to benefit local residents.

What Islington Giving does

Islington Giving website

Islington Giving works closely with inspiring local people and organisations to change lives for good in Islington.

Many people don't experience Islington as a place of wealth and opportunity, but instead deal with isolation, insecurity or financial hardship.

Its practical, action-focused work helps support people across the whole borough.

Who's involved

Since 2010, residents, local, national, and international funders and businesses, and over 75 voluntary organisations have worked together with Islington Giving to tackle poverty and inequality in the borough. 

The board of Islington Giving is made up of core partners. Each contributes financially, and brings expertise and experience.
