John Nickson is a campaigner for more philanthropy and charitable giving. He is also a donor, charity trustee, one of the UK’s most experienced fundraisers and the author of OUR COMMON GOOD – if the state provides less, who will provide more? and GIVING IS GOOD FOR YOU – why Britain should be bothered and give more.
Forty years working in the not-for-profit sector and serving as a trustee for education, arts and development charities has strengthened his conviction that the giving of time and money should be at the heart of a healthy society, particularly at a time when the gap between rich and poor is growing.
