Who are Islington Giving?
We are an independent group of funders, businesses, residents and voluntary organisations working together to tackle poverty and inequality in Islington.
We want Islington to be a place where everyone – regardless of circumstance – has the opportunity and means to live a fulfilled life.
We work by shining a light on the issues of poverty and inequality and harnessing resources to address them. We focus on:
- Investing in young people
- Supporting families
- Reaching isolated people
- We make grants to voluntary organisations which provide support and activities
- We make, build and develop partnerships to deliver projects and create networks
- We fundraise
You can read about our work in 2016, and about the work of Islington Giving in the local community, in our Annual Review, below:
Gracie Loveday (who ran the Brighton Marathon to raise funds for Islington Giving in 2015), ran this year’s London Marathon to support our work! Mother of two Gracie, who has worked at local family-run estate agent Currell for 11 years, finished with a time of 5:38:39.
You can congratulate Gracie by making a donation. Your donation will support local community organisations in Islington in their work to tackle poverty and inequality in the borough.
