Give as a business

Are you looking for a meaningful way for your business to give back to the Islington community?

Islington Giving’s vision is of a borough where everyone has the opportunity to live a good life. Since we began our work in 2010, we have worked with a range of local businesses to raise funds, support communities and projects, share local knowledge, and create access to opportunities for local people. 

There are many ways to get involved – from becoming a Coalition Partner and helping to make strategic decisions about our approach to social change in the borough, to supporting specific projects that benefit the local community. 

By partnering with Islington Giving, businesses can connect their CSR, Responsible Business or Social Value goals with our local knowledge and insights about areas of unmet need on your doorstep, to make a positive and meaningful impact for the long-term.  

Current and previous business partners have helped us to developed innovative community programmes in collaboration with local charities, helped to improve access to employment opportunities for local young people, supporting social mobility, and supported the shifting of decision-making power back into the hands of the community.    

We also have a number of employee volunteering opportunities in Islington available, via our partner the BIG Alliance. Get in touch to find out more – we’d love to hear from you.

The business of giving in Islington

When many of your customers live locally, it makes sense to let them know you are committed to changing local lives for good.

Businesses give money, offer space, introduce contacts and help to create ideas that can have a life changing impact for local people.

Whether by opening spaces for people to talk about their mental health, giving children and young people more opportunities, or easing loneliness, your business can be part of an inspiring network who are giving something special every day.
