GLA launches review on role of London Mayor in boosting impactful giving

May 1st 2018

What role can the London Mayor and GLA play in increasing giving in the capital and how can company and individual philanthropy amplify its own investment in current and future priorities for London?

You are invited to answer these questions in a new review commissioned by the GLA from Rocket Science. The review's aim is to deliver highly practical and achievable actions the GLA could take to make a measurable impact on giving in London, which is estimated to be around £5.5bn a year in cash according to research commissioned by City Philanthropy.

John Griffiths of Rocket Science says: “It is important that as many partners and stakeholders as possible feel able to feed into this review. We are interested in hearing from those who work in the philanthropy sector; from charities and independent funders, to individual and corporate citizens.”

Anyone interested in taking part can offer their thoughts through this survey, or email john.griffiths@rocketsciencelab.co.uk.
