Top 100 UK family foundations gave £1.3 billion in 2009/10

first_img The largest 100 UK family foundations gave a total of £1.3 billion to charitable causes in 2009/10, representing 7% of all UK charitable giving. The figure is one of the findings in the Family Foundation Giving Trends 2011 report, produced by Pears Foundation and the ESRC Research Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy at Cass Business School.The annual report has been published for four years. It found that UK family foundations have contributed £6.4 billion to charitable causes in the past five years, and that their giving has increased by 27% in that period, outpacing corporate (7% growth) and public giving (-0.4%).The family foundation sector is dominated by a few large organisations: the ten largest family foundations by asset size own over 80% of the assets of the top 100. Nevertheless, the sector is significant in size: three quarters of the largest 100 family foundations give between £1 million and £6 million each year.Charles Keidan, Director of Pears Foundation, said: “Many people recognise their increasing obligation to society through philanthropy – the report indicates that establishing a family foundation could be the most beneficial contribution they make. We need to see greater support to helping them do this and to ensuring it is not just seen as the preserve of the super rich.”Cathy Pharaoh, author of the report and Professor of Charity Funding and co-director of the ESRC Research Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy, Cass Business School, agreed, saying: “The report calls on charities, professional advisers and policy makers to develop many more imaginative and supportive ways for potential philanthropists to share experiences and learning to ensure the bridge is crossed and more foundations are established.”www.pearsfoundation.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Family-Foundation-Philanthropy-20113.pdf Howard Lake | 16 November 2011 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Funding Giving/Philanthropy Research / statistics Top 100 UK family foundations gave £1.3 billion in 2009/10  23 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

On November 19, 1955 he married the love of his life, Evelyn Graves, and they have enjoyed 63 1/2 years of marriage which graced them with two beautiful children, four grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Lovell was the admiration of many nieces and nephews. Lovell was an honorable son, brother, husband, father, uncle, grandfather, and great grandfather.Lovell was a wonderful provider for his family, working his job at the Seasongood Box Factory in Harrison, Ohio, coming home to milk the cows, eating dinner with his family and then working in tobacco until the sun set. He considered himself a farmer and loved to be outdoors. In his later years he spent a good deal of time tending to a small garden and mowing grass in which he took great pride and pleasure. Never a man who drew attention to himself, he modeled hard work, patience, kindness and humility.Lovell had enjoyed playing basketball and softball since he was a young man and shared this passion with all the children in the family and beyond. Some of the neighborhood children would come over to his house to see if he could come out to play. He had an amazing set shot and was known to pitch a mean ball.He is preceded in death by his parents Ballard and Bertha Fryman; brothers Thurman B. Fryman, Johnny Fryman, Vernon “Joe” Fryman, Clarence “Ace” Fryman, and Stanley Fryman; sisters, Thelma Cherry and Irene Edwards.Surviving him is his loving wife, Evelyn Fryman, his son, David “Woody” (Alecia) Fryman, his daughter, Wendy (Greg) Brauer, his granddaughter, Maya Brauer, his grandsons, Keenen Fryman, Tony Fryman and Shane Vinup, as well as great grandchildren, Richard, Chase, Anna, Avery, and Alexa, his brother, George “Junior” Fryman, and sisters, Wanda Hill and Emma Lou (Pete) Schwebach.Graveside Services will be held at Greendale Cemetery, 886 Nowlin Ave, Wednesday April 24, 2019 at 2:30 pm with Rev.
