This is the sixth annual edition of Family Foundation Giving Trends. It provides an uptade on annual charitable spending by the top 100 family foundations - a key indicator of the contribution of UK philanthropists, past and present. The report has been revised as part of a new series of foundation briefings published by ACF and CGAP with support from Pears Foundation. Foundations may be funded through families, individuals, family businesses, companies, government, or fundraising, and this report specifically focuses on family foundations.
This report has been compiled in the light of the importance attached by government to the role of increased giving and philanthropy in achieving stronger communities and active citizenship. Working within the Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy (CGAP), a centre dedicated to the study of giving and philanthropy, CGAP's researchers felt it was important to highlight research findings that would cast light on the nature of philanthropy in our society today, how it relates to the needs and ideals of Big Society, and the emerging implications for policy and practice. Individual authors focus on the particular issues tackled within their various research programmes; in spite of the diversity of perspectives, however, a common conclusion emerges that expectations of the contribution that philanthropy can make to meeting social needs exceed the reality of what it currently delivers.
