In 2009 BNP Paribas and Campden Research in association with Changing our World, created this first truly global study of family philanthropy. Examining how ultra-high net-worth families engage in and manage their philanthropic activities.
This report was created during a time of grave economic challenges, when headlines focused on the immediate and dire predictions – but focused on the deeper constancy of philanthropic ventures undertaken by the ultra-affluent. Practically the report provides a range of insights from the big picture: the roots of philanthropy in family culture, the individual’s motivation and commitment to cause and the rise of strategic philanthropy, to the detail: how individuals and families, and their family businesses, select, manage and execute philanthropic commitments. It includes analysis of collaborations, concerns about relationships in the philanthropic sphere and priorities for the future, including the role of advice and advisors.
Campden Research reports are available on a complimentary basis to all qualifying family principals and family office executives who complete a request form. Campden Research reports are available for purchase to all other individuals.
