This report published in June 2013 was produced by the Office for Public Management and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations. Commissioned by Islington Giving after less than three years existence it decided to evaluate its work since it was using innovative and relatively untested methods.
The aims of the study were:
- exploring the model of place-based philanthropy used by Islington Giving and assessing its strengths and weaknesses
- understanding the emerging impact of Islington Giving on the borough
- examining the challenges facing Islington Giving and options for future development
- drawing out key lessons for others interested in developing placebased philanthropy in their own areas
