Islington Giving: “Ground-Breaking Charitable Campaign Tackles Pressing Issues”

An article by Dr Cat Walker, writing for online financial information platform CharityFinancials.com, identifies Islington Giving as a leading innovator of place-based giving, “a new way of bringing together local people with local funders to effect change and positive development by tackling the specific needs in their communities.” Recognising a growing trend for locally-focused philanthropy throughout London, the article outlines that the uniqueness of Islington Giving is characterised by its focus on places, partnerships, local knowledge and collaboration.

Islington Giving has also inspired the wider London’s Giving movement, managed by London Funders, made up of place-based giving initiatives in 13 London boroughs.
