Exploring trends and improving knowledge
Our research programme is focussed on investigating and
increasing understanding of charitable giving and
We provide free research and analysis helping to influence the
decisions of charities, companies, donors, policy-makers,
researchers and journalists worldwide.
Among the trends we explore are the changing finances of
charities, patterns of individual giving, use of Gift Aid and
other tax-effective giving methods, corporate social responsibility
strategies, and trends in philanthropy.
We have an extensive list of publications covering a broad range
of topics across the charitable sector.
