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:
- Charities in the Firing Line
- Charity’s No Stranger to Political Advocacy
- the above piece also on CAF’s blog
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.
