Coutts Million Pound Donor Report

By Kieron L Jones, on 17 December 2012

The Coutts Million Pound Donor Report is the first study to focus exclusively on UK charitable donations worth £1 million or more. It aims to capture and track trends in major giving, including the size of donations above a million pounds, the type of donors making gifts of this size and the causes that are benefiting.

There is currently very little reliable data to help us understand what is going on at this end of the UK philanthropy sector. General surveys capture information on giving by the general population, but there is a widely accepted need to plug the data-gap on the size, source and impact of the largest charitable donations.

In addition to presenting and analysing the findings, this report includes case studies of million pound donors and million pound recipients, to help contextualise the data and bring to life the experience of giving and receiving donations worth a million pounds or more.”
