Our Coalition Partners

Our Coalition Partners are a group of local business and corporates, and trusts and foundations who sit on the Islington Giving board and help us to shape the focus of our local charity work.  

Islington Giving is a coalition of local people and organisations, working together to raise funds, support communities and projects, share local knowledge, and connect each other in Islington. Our Coalition Partners are a group of local business and corporates, and trusts and foundations who sit on the Islington Giving board and help us to shape the focus of our local charity work.  

Our Coalition Partners contribute to our joint values and our vision of making Islington a more equal place, where everyone can thrive. By partnering with Islington Giving, local businesses and organisations can connect their strategic priorities and CSR goals with our local knowledge and insights about areas of unmet need on their doorstep.   

Working in partnership, we believe can create more effective, meaningful social change locally than we could individually.
