New report calls for ‘proper discussion’ on charitable giving in the UK

Charitable giving in the UK needs powerful new perspectives if the government’s hopes for a Big Society are to be successful.

While philanthropy plays a vital part in society, its contribution is limited by the values of donors. Hence, donor decision-making needs to be directed at areas where giving is most needed and in ways that lead to greater inclusion, diversity and social justice.

These are the conclusions of a new report from the ESRC Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy (CGAP), a consortium of universities and NCVO co-ordinated at Cass Business School, part of City University London. The report brings together leading CGAP academic experts to discuss the opportunities and challenges for philanthropy under the Big Society umbrella.
