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.

The report outlines the benefits of trusteeship and gives guidance on how to find a trustee position that combines opportunities for personal development and the chance to make a difference to the community. It says: “For employers, supporting trusteeship can help develop staff skills and experience and give younger employees an opportunity to gain board-level experience at an early stage in their career.” It can also tie in with corporate social responsibility programmes and improve recruitment and retention.
