A Guide to Giving is the essential, free handbook for anyone who would like to support charities and good causes effectively. The Guide provides clear, practical and objective guidance on a variety of approaches to and mechanisms for giving.
A Guide to Giving was conceived and written by Theresa Lloyd and first published in September 2003. It was awarded the Crystal Mark of the Plain English Campaign
Now in its third edition, published by Philanthropy UK with the continued support of private bank Coutts & Co, A Guide to Giving is a valuable and up-to-date resource for both philanthropists and their advisors.
Reflecting the sophisticated approach donors now take in their giving, the third edition of the Guide, published December 2008, includes new topics and a special section on family business and philanthropy, with a new contribution from Theresa Lloyd. You can download A Guide to Giving free of charge from Philanthropy UK's website. A printed version will be available to order shortly (Jan 09).
"With no exceptions, [A Guide to Giving] is the most useful and insightful publication that I have ever possessed. It is an absolute boon for me in my charity work."
