Join our Donor Research Panel and help us grow our collective impact

We are proud to support the impact delivered by individual and corporate donors who choose to work with us to realise their giving ambitions. And with your help we believe we can make an even greater difference to more people and communities in the years ahead.

To that end, we would like to invite you to join our Donor Research Panel, led by our expert research team who are behind our sector leading reports: UK Giving and World Giving Index.

As part of this community of donors, you will be consulted in different ways, including through:

  • Quantitative and qualitative surveys on topics related to giving and philanthropy
  • Interviews to help us gain a full understanding of your expectations and giving experiences with CAF
  • Focus groups to explore your thoughts, responses and preferences through open-ended questions
  • Field testing improvements that we’re planning to make to our giving products.

Our first research will be on the cost-of-living crisis

The first topic we’d like to examine with the panel is how the cost-of-living crisis has impacted your giving and how you choose to engage and support your employees. As outlined in our recent blog, the cost-of-living crisis, and the concerning trend of fewer people giving to charity, has led to a third of charity leaders revealing they are worried that their organisation will struggle to survive.

Incentives to take part

If you join the panel you'll be automatically entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a £1000 donation to a UK registered charity of your choice (see the prize draw terms and conditions). Once you've joined, you can choose which research requests to take part in (each request will clearly explain the time commitment) and further incentives will be offered in exchange for your participation.
