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.
