2019 Young Grant-Makers launch a call for project proposals

Our 2019 Young Grant-Makers have launched a funding programme. All information below.

We’ve been working with our second cohort of Young Grant-Makers to design an open funding programme for local organisations. You can download the application guidelines here, or read on to find out what they are looking to fund.

“We are a group of 16 local young people aged 16-25 who became Islington Giving’s second group of Young Grant-Makers in March 2019. We have joined Islington Giving to make grant decisions that will benefit Islington’s young people.

We are now inviting applications for inclusive projects that equip young people for their future, help them overcome barriers to participation and provide them with the opportunity to shine.

In addition to these guidelines we are holding an information evening on Tuesday 25th June from 6.30-8pm, for those who may be interested in applying for funding. This will be an opportunity for you to meet us and ask questions.

The information evening will be held at Cripplegate Foundation, 13 Elliott’s Place, N1 8HX. Please register your interest in attending by emailing Maria Sahin.”
