A Guide to Giving (2003, 2005 and 2008)

Now in its third edition, 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.

The book has been awarded the Crystal Mark of the Plain English Campaign. 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 includes new topics and a special section on family business and philanthropy.

“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.”
