A report into donors who give a million pounds or more to charity will be published nextw eek at the launch of the new Centre for Philanthropy, Humanitarianism and Social Justice (CPHSJ) at the University of Kent.
The Coutts “Million-Pound Donors Report” has been authored by Beth Breeze, co-founder of CPHSJ. It is the first attempt to collate and analyse data on UK charitable donations of £1 million or more. The aim of the report is to assess the scale and impact of such gifts, of which almost 200 were identified for 2006/2007, and to get a better understanding of who is making them and what causes they are supporting.

Dr Iain Wilkinson, Director of CPHSJ, said that the report was the first publication in an initiative to track trends in major giving within established and emerging sectors of philanthropy. He said: “It aims to provide donors, philanthropic advisors, fundraisers and policymakers with a robust evidence base from which to engage in debates over the social value of philanthropy and the means by which this might be promoted and enhanced”.
Mark Evans, Head of Family Business and Philanthropy at Coutts & Co, said: “We are delighted to be working with the University of Kent to raise awareness of the contribution of million-pound donors to so many different causes. It is also why our focus at Coutts is on helping private clients create their own effective giving strategies.”
