Vital contributors

Our sector makes a vital contribution to the UK economy, local communities and public life. The campaign aims to set the record straight.

340,000 individuals with more than £1m of investable wealth give some £1.3bn annually to good causes. Those who are well advised give up to 17 times more.

Peer Groups provide powerful exchanges of ideas and initiative all aimed at knowledge sharing and improvement.
