Why Rich People Give

Why Rich People Give is the result of the first major research into the attitudes of wealthy people in the UK to money - how they create it, keep it and spend it. It aims to enable charities and fundraising organisations to become more effective in developing and managing their relationships with higher net worth individuals, and society in general. This is the summary version of the book, written by Theresa Lloyd, the then director of Philanthropy UK.
