Uncertainty has shrouded UK charities following the June 24, 2016 vote to exit the European Union. Early indications, however, indicate that the Brexit referendum has done little to affect giving – with Brits donating £9.7 billion in 2016, up slightly from £9.6 billion in 2015. The sum, when factoring in the margin for error, shows little or no change in giving. The figure lags behind 2010’s high-water mark of £11.6 billion, according to Charities Aid Foundation’s (CAF) report – CAF UK Giving 2017 – but is in-line with figures from recent years that have kept within the £10 billion range.
