Individual giving

Local Giving schemes are founded on the principle that everyone has something to give: money, time and skills are all valuable. At Hackney Giving we are here to help you support the community in Hackney in a way that works for you.

Giving money is really easy – just go to our JustGiving page where you can donate directly on a one-off or regular basis. We welcome all donations of money, whether big or small – no contribution is too small to make a difference.

Raise funds for Hackney Giving

Are you celebrating a big birthday and feel that you already have everything you need? Are you running Hackney Half Marathon and looking for a charity to support? Or maybe it’s your retirement and colleagues want to wish you well with donations in your name. We’d be delighted to be your nominated charity. You can set up a fundraising page safe in the knowledge that funding you raise for Hackney Giving will support the borough’s grassroots charities and community groups in their work.

Alternatively, if you’d like to raise funds via offline events, please contact us for details of how you can transfer a donation to Hackney Giving.

Volunteer with us

We appreciate the input of volunteers as much as the voluntary and community partners we fund do. We are developing some formal volunteer roles in partnership with Volunteer Centre Hackney. In the meantime, there are creative ways to support Hackney Giving. Could you take photographs of the borough looking its best for use in our publicity, write up case studies of some of our funded groups, or help us to make links with Hackney’s business community? Contact us if you’ve got some time to spare and would like to help. We are keen to hear from you! If you’re a business and are interested in business volunteering, please go to our business giving page.

Have skills or resources to share?

As a part of Hackney CVS, the umbrella body for the voluntary and community Sector (VCS) in Hackney, our network of voluntary and community Sector organisations is wide reaching. If you would like to offer skills or resources to VCS organisations and you’d like us to publicise an opportunity, please let us know.
