Uneven distribution of charitable grant giving

The new publication ‘Sector Insight: UK Grant-making Trusts and Foundations 2015’, with analysis of 2,500 grant-making charities, also includes an exploration of geographical distribution and the (narrow) range of causes covered by the grants given.

Charities Aid Foundation’s blog takes a look the what this reveals about the mismatch between demand and supply in philanthropy, and also the low level of feedback to failed grant applicants. Read ‘Uneven Foundations: Are charitable trusts failing to match supply with demand?‘.

Also see ‘Trusts and foundations are too centred on London and the South East of England‘, on Civil Society News.
