Collaborating for greater impact

A joint project between NPC, Mowat NFP, and Imagine Canada, this paper defines the data ecosystem, summarises the charitable data policy context, and highlights key challenges and emerging trends. It provides actionable recommendations to build a more enabling environment for data collection, analysis and sharing.

More than grants

As a country we face huge challenges. These challenges present questions for everyone who funds charities. It’s time to ask whether charitable foundations in the UK are doing enough—and are doing the right things—to support the voluntary and community sector.

NPC and Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales have teamed up to address these questions, looking at funding practices around the globe. In these three publications we present our findings, and call upon funders to consider how they can use their brains, as well as their financial brawn, to support a much relied-upon voluntary sector.
