Groundwork for Growing Giving

CAF is looking at how we can encourage the growth of civil society across the globe. The growth of the global middle class offers huge philanthropic potential if giving levels in countries such as the UK can be matched internationally, representing a means for sustainable domestic development.
We’re exploring an opportunity for the Department for International Development to work collaboratively with governments to develop infrastructure for a thriving civil society, particularly in countries where the UK is transitioning out of aid relationships, to leave a lasting legacy of UK aid.
