Meeting with the Charities Aid Foundation on giving more effectively

September 27, 2017

Cardiff West MP, Kevin Brennan, recently spoke with the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) whose mission is to motivate society to give more effectively, helping to transform lives and communities around the world.

CAF recently published a report which explores the potential impact that the UK Government could generate by investing in civil society infrastructure across the world as part of their international development work.

Their report highlighted that if people in the growing global middle class – set to increase by 2.4 billion by 2030 - give 0.5% of their income to charity it could generate $319 billion in donations towards civil society organisations annually.

Campaigns Manager Steve Clapperton at CAF, said “Investing in global civil society infrastructure could unleash a culture of giving across the world that unlocks billions to tackle the challenges that we face. We want the Government to make growing civil society infrastructure a core part of our international engagement and were delighted to talk to Kevin about how we can use our soft power to create a groundwork for growing giving across the globe”
