Is giving up or down and what is the best way to tell? nfpSynergy responds to the CAF's UK Giving Report 2012


The recent CAF/NCVO UK Giving report has announced that giving by individuals in the UK dropped by 20% between 2010/11 and 2011/12. If true, this would indicate a catastrophic decline in the generosity of the UK public and a major challenge for UK charities.
If their data were about local and central government grants and contracts, we don’t think anybody would question their findings. There are plenty of charities who have announced a fall of 20% in income from government, not least NCVO!

It’s a simple enough concept. You ask a sample of consumers whether they would recommend a brand to a friend and minus those who would not (detractors) from all those who would (promoters).
