TRANSFORMING THE WORLD

The projects and causes funded by our generous donors are extraordinarily diverse, and we support them at every stage of their philanthropic journey to help maximise the impact of their donations.


From funding the building work of a library for an overseas orphanage in memory of a loved one, to funding a project to illuminate bridges on the Thames in central London, our donors are making a difference all over the world.

THE RISE OF DONOR ADVISED GIVING

Our Philanthropy Comes of Age report, in partnership with UK Community Foundations, looks at the incredible year-on-year rise of donor advised giving in the UK and the potential to grow support for charities and causes long into the future.

We're proud to have pioneered this way to give in the UK and accounts for more than half of the donations through donor advised funds and their UK equivalents.
