Regular readers of this blog will know that CAF has been working closely with a number of Parliamentarians to investigate the ways that people of all ages are able to give to good causes, with the aim of ensuring that future generations develop their charitable instincts – the Parliamentary Inquiry on Growing Giving.
The second stage of the inquiry has recently finished, and has been looking at the ways that people can give in the workplace. Featuring interesting contributions from representatives from the likes of Google, BT and McDonalds, the report itself is well worth a read, and includes a number of case-studies showing that there is much great work already taking place in this important area.
Alternatively, for a bitesize analysis of some of the key pieces of evidence, articles examining the ways that businesses are helping their employees give to charities whilst at work, as well as looking at the business case for giving and the future of workplace giving provide a brief insight into some of the key issues that the inquiry has been focusing on.
Led by chair Rt Hon David Blunkett MP and with the backing of co-chairs Andrew Percy MP and Baroness Claire Tyler of Enfield, the inquiry will now turn to focus on the ways that older people are able to support charities, and asking how they are able to pass the gift of giving onto the next generation.
