A Charity Aid Foundation’s blog item (Crisis and Response: What history tells us about the challenges facing UK charities) has pointed us in the direction of the fairly new ‘HistPhil’ – a blog on the History of Philanthropy (started June 2015).

HistPhil has been running a series on philanthropy and the state, and in particular a set of articles on governmental reform of charities within the UK, with titles:

Other pieces of interest include ‘When Philanthropy Engaged the Elderly Humanistically‘.

Note: the latest articles are found in the carousel at the top of HistPhil’s front page, rather than in the body of that page.
