Cripplegate Foundation is an innovative place-based grantmaker that designs and develops new ways of transforming the lives of people living in Islington and the Cripplegate Ward, City of London. Since being established in 1500, it has provided resources and support to local people and organisations by building strong and effective partnerships. Driven by its research into life in Islington, Cripplegate Foundation worked with local partners to establish Islington Giving in 2010.
Islington Giving brings people together to change lives for good. Many people don't experience Islington as a place of wealth and opportunity, but instead deal with isolation, insecurity or financial hardship. Our practical, action-focused work helps support people across the whole borough. Since 2010, together with inspiring local partners, we have reached over 20,000 people. But we need more support to change more lives.
