About Us

The Giving Department has been helping businesses, philanthropists and funders make a substantial impact on charities and communities since 2010. We are passionate about delivering genuine social change and feel privileged that, in doing so, we are able to work in collaboration with some truly amazing people. We are a London-based team, made up of a core group of dedicated sector specialists. Where it will add value, we work with expert associates and academics who combine to offer a breadth of knowledge and expertise across the sector.


Our mission is to enable companies, philanthropists and charitable foundations to feel empowered and fulfilled by creating real change and maximising the impact of their investment in charities and the community.
