OUR PASSION

We are champions for charity, campaigning for a better world.  We work to influence government policy makers and create a positive environment for charities and the people who support them. Our work with local councils and community groups is Growing Local Giving and our Groundwork for Global Giving campaign is building a stronger civil society across the world. Our Future:Good campaign aims to ensure new technologies and social trends have a positive impact on the future giving.

Our latest campaign, with a collaboration of charities and #NeverMoreNeeded, is to grow Gift Aid to give more support for charities struggling from the impact of the COVID-19 crisis.

    Why charities and funders should invest in resilience

    These days the idea of resilience is being mentioned more frequently - resilience of individuals to cope with pressure, resilience of systems to absorb shocks, and resilience of local communities to deal with external pressures. The pandemic exposed many charities to additional pressures and led to another increase in demand for services. Not only did the pandemic challenge resilience but it raised its importance and place it at the forefront of many charity leaders' minds.
