More people are giving to charity

It was good to hear today that more people are giving to charity in spite of the economic news, according to a survey for the Charities Aid Foundation, although the average amount being donated is down.

The key thing for me is to make that giving effective. And that means regular, targetted, and tax-efficient.

Regular because that's what benefits a charity the most; targetted because no-one can afford to help with every need in the world; and tax-efficient because if the government has provided tax breaks to encourage charitable giving it's worth using them.

For more information see our website: Effective Charity Giving. This covers Gift Aid, and a number of other tax-efficient ways to give, including how to reduce your Inheritance Tax liability.
