The Innovation in Giving Fund supported projects that aimed to get many more people involved in giving time, money, skills and resources to the causes they care about

People giving their time, money, skills and resources plays a crucial role in building communities and tackling some of society’s biggest problems. We have long felt there is a compelling case for innovation to support a greater proportion of the population to take part. The Innovation in Giving Fund, launched in 2011 in partnership with the Office for Civil Society, supported innovators, charities and public services working in this field.
