Guidestar goes public - Monday 12 December 2005

A lack of information means UK charities are missing out on donations of time and money according to research by charity information website, GuideStar UK, which launched 12 December.

It found that almost a third of the UK (31%) would be more willing to contribute time or money to national charities, and almost half (46%) would give to local charities, if they had access to more information. For the latter, this could generate an extra £103,062,675 in donations.

Two in five people also said they gave less to charity because they were not confident how the money would be spent.
