Giving research centre put out for tender

Funders of the UK's first independent, multidisciplinary and academically based centre for charitable giving and philanthropy will announce plans for the tender process on Friday.

The document will outline plans for a central ‘hub’ to co-ordinate the centre and three ‘spokes’ covering individual and business giving; charitable giving and social redistribution; and institutionalised giving structures.

It will request that organisations interested in running the centre put in full proposals for the part of the centre they would want to be involved in.

It is expected that the location of the centre and the decision on the appointment of organisations to take on the role of hub and the spokes will be decided by December.

There will be a total of £2.2 million of investment over five years from the Economic and Social Research Council, the Office of the Third Sector, The Carnegie UK Trust and the Scottish Executive.

The closing date for bids is 14 August.
