John Nickson, one of the UK’s most experienced fundraiser, is now a philanthropist who campaigns for more philanthropy  and charitable giving.

He is the co-founder of OUR COMMON GOOD, a donor advised charitable fund, and the author of two books about philanthropy: OUR COMMON GOOD and GIVING IS GOOD FOR YOU.

Fifty years in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors as a senior executive 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, that philanthropy has a leading role to play in addressing serious societal problems which will only be solved when all the sectors work together as partners.
