CAF Research and Insight: EXPLORING TRENDS AND IMPROVING KNOWLEDGE
CAF: “We have been publishing our independent research into charities and charitable giving for over 20 years. Our work influences the decisions of charities, companies, donors, policy-makers, researchers and journalists worldwide. Our publications are free to read and download.
“Among the trends we explore are the changing finances of charities, patterns of individual giving, use of Gift Aid and other tax-effective giving methods, corporate social responsibility strategies, and trends in philanthropy. We have an extensive list of publications covering a broad range of topics across the charitable sector. We also publish data on CAF's Covid-19 Emergency Grant Fund and plan to grow our data sharing.

Review by Wilde Ganzen
The CAF website is a very important source of information about giving. Not only giving in the UK, but worldwide. With focus on English-speaking countries. Example: reports on charitable giving in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.
Research papers can be downloaded for free, but prior registration is necessary.
Apart from research, CAF is also active in advice to charities. With focus on the UK, but also with advice that will help CSOs worldwide.
The CAF website is very big. Spending time in exploring it is however certainly worthwhile.
