We work to build a stronger charitable sector by running campaigns, influencing government and encouraging people to give to good causes

  • Mind the Gap

    Charitable giving by individuals has always played an important role and may become even more essential in the coming years. This report reveals that there could be trouble ahead if the younger generation fail to keep up levels of giving.
  • Britain’s Civic Core

    Just 9% of people are responsible for two-thirds of all charitable activity and 24% of people engage in little or no charitable activity. We took our report to the 2013 party conferences and asked how we could grow Britain’s Civic Core.
  • Funding the Charity Commission

    In this paper CAF sets out alternative proposals to help the Commission stem its funding shortfall while improving regulation.
  • Growing up Giving

    The first stage of the Inquiry looked at how younger people support good causes, learn about charities, can use charitable activity to boost their opportunities, as well as how charities can make themselves accessible to younger audiences.
  • Creating an Age of Giving
