In this issue Philanthropy UK's Magazine explores the issue of diversity – is philanthropy representative of the UK’s cultural mix? One in six people in the UK are non- White, however there are few statistics to compare this to the level of philanthropic participation by non-White people.
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.
