CGAP is the UK's first research Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy. It aims to develop knowledge and engage with donors, charities and practitioners. CGAP is a consortium of British research institutions with three main research themes:
People and companies in the UK give about £13 billion per year to charities. CGAP is studying motivations, trends and entrepreneurs.
Independent trusts and foundations in the UK make charitable grants of around £3 billion per year. CGAP is studying key issues in grant-making.
Charities provide many key services in society today. CGAP is studying fundraising, social redistribution, policy and culture.
New working paper
New research by Beth Breeze explores employee fundraising. The paper looks at the shop floor motivations for becoming involved in philanthropic activity in the workplace. Read 'Corporate philanthropy on the shop floor: what drives employee fundraising?' (pdf) and Beth's article in Civil Society.
CGAP has prepared this extensive bibliography on the measurement of giving and on planned giving. It is not intended to be fully comprehensive, but a working document which should provide a useful starting point for researchers. Read Planned Giving and Measurement of Giving – a Bibliography of Research References (pdf).
