The launch of the Foundation Giving Trends 2017 sees foundation grant-making hit a record high of £2.9billion this year.
This report is the latest in a series of annual research reports led by Professor Cathy Pharoah and Dr Catherine Walker, published by the Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF), and supported by Pears Foundation.
The report, which ranks the top 300 Foundations by the value of their grant-making and provides aggregated data on the size, shape and nature of foundations’ contribution to UK civil society, also details the specific growth trajectories of family and corporate foundations. It shows family giving growing by around 20% this year, and now accounting for almost two thirds of the total grant-making.
