Islington Giving

Islington Giving awards grants to voluntary organisations providing support and activities to Islington residents. Islington Giving shines a light on the issues of poverty and inequality and harnesses resources to address them.

Cripplegate Foundation helped to establish Islington Giving in 2010. As well as contributing financially, Cripplegate Foundation manages all Islington Giving grants. Islington Giving awarded over £1million in grants in 2016 thanks to the contributions of residents, businesses and funders. You can read more about our work with the members of Islington Giving here.

Islington Giving puts local people in the lead, building on the strengths residents and organisations bring with their skills, assets and energy to support themselves and their communities.
