Evidencing the Need

A London's Giving master class - 17th June 2015

Inspired by the innovative Islington Giving, a ground-breaking cross sector collaboration, London's Giving is sharing the evidence base, lessons learnt and know-how from local giving campaigns to help interested London boroughs to create their own locally tailored initiatives. This meeting was the first London’s Giving ‘master class’.

Successful placed-based giving is underpinned by excellent local knowledge and a firm evidence base. Knowing your local area inside out and identifying its specific issues and priorities is essential in creating a vision, building a collaboration and is the cornerstone of a successful local campaign. All London boroughs are repositories of facts and figures but pulling out the relevant data can be difficult and time consuming. 

This masterclass allowed attendees to hear from three experts on their approaches to using data, developing a local fund raising campaign, and communications and grant making strategies.

You will find attached the powerpoint slides from this master class attached above.
