Family Foundation Philanthropy report - 2009

Family Foundation Philanthropy 2009 updates and compares trends in the charitable spending of major family foundations in the UK and US.

It also presents data on family foundations in two contrasting continental European countries, Germany and Italy, both of which have long, though very different, traditions of family foundation philanthropy. These countries lack the same level of published financial information as the UK and US, because reporting is not mandatory. But while full comparisons were not possible, the data gathered is sufficient to show the strong presence of family foundations in the philanthropy of the UK, Germany, Italy and the US. The research focused mainly on the largest 100 charitable family foundations in each of the four countries, for reasons of feasibility and because it was found that these generally represented the majority of such philanthropy by value.
