London's Giving is a growing network of place based giving schemes across the capital. Inspired by the innovative Islington Giving, we support boroughs to create their own locally tailored initiatives through sharing ideas, learning and connecting with others.
Place based giving is centred on the belief that we all have something to give – whether that is time, money, skills or connections. Place based giving schemes bring together these resources in a local area, and work collaboratively to think about the best way to use these. Place based giving schemes share three principles:
At London Funders, thanks to funding from City Bridge Trust, we have been supporting place based giving schemes since 2014.

London's Giving aims to strengthen the collective capacity and potential of place based giving – find out more about the impact of place based giving in London and how you can join the movement on the London’s Giving website.
