In an age of hardening borders, national divides and austerity, philanthropy looks to be coming home with a renewed interest in place-based giving as a way of tackling disadvantage. Cheryl Chapman looks at new initiatives and thinking on place-based giving
We define philanthropy as the giving of resources in an engaged and strategic way for maximum impact and in a tax efficient manner. It can include the giving of money, assets, time, talent, voice and one’s social capital. We believe in the power of philanthropy as a great social connector and the source of many great opportunities.
