Donate

Islington Giving is incredibly grateful for the generosity of residents and businesses, without which we would not be able to invest in Islington.

Donating to Islington Giving is easy.  You can donate, either as a one-off or by setting up a regular payment, by using any of the methods below or contact the team on 020 7288 6940 to discuss your gift. All running costs are covered by Cripplegate Foundation,  meaning that 100% of the money that is generously donated goes to support local projects – click here for more information.

If you are a UK tax payer, we’re able to claim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate – all you have to do is download a Gift Aid form and send it to the office address below.

Standing Order

For a copy of our standing order form, please contact the Islington Giving team at mail@islingtongiving.org.uk. We will send you a standing order form to complete. Once completed, either send it directly to your bank or to Islington Giving, 13 Elliott's Place, London, N1 8HX and we will forward it onto them.

We are unable to set up direct debits to receive donations because standing orders are distinct from direct debits. When a person sets up a standing order, they choose the amount of money to pay to an organisation. With a direct debit, the organisation is allowed to alter the amount of money it receives.

For paying regular gas and electricity bills, the direct debit option is most appropriate, as the cost will vary from month to month. As there would never be a time when we would alter the amount of money that you give to us, we feel that a standing order is the best and safest option for you.

At any time, you are free to alter the amount you pay, change the frequency of payment or cancel a standing order. If you wish to do any of these things, please contact your bank directly.
Cheque or CAF

Please make cheques payable to ’Islington Giving’ and send to Islington Giving, 13 Elliot’s Place, London, N1 8HX.
Payroll Giving 

Payroll Giving (sometimes known as Workplace Giving or Give As You Earn) is a great way to make regular donations to us straight from your pay - click here for further information.

Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice.

Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p.

Payroll Giving is a valuable, long term source of revenue, providing regular income to help charities budget and plan ahead more effectively. Employees can choose to support any charity of their choice with a regular donation direct from their pay.

This method is cheaper because it's tax free - for example, a donation of £5 per month costs the basic rate tax payer £4.00 (the taxman pays the rest)

Higher rate taxpayers - this is the only way to pass on your 40% or 45% tax to charities. Only 28% can be recouped via other ways of giving.
