Global trends, innovation and evolving technology are significantly changing the way individuals and business give and engage with their communities, and this will have significant implications for the government and charitable sectors into the future.
The key findings from this research are expected in mid-2015 and will inform the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership’s advice to government on strategies to make giving simpler and more accessible for existing donors and how to attract new donors and volunteers, including a younger generation.
