Intelligent Giving to be taken over by New Philanthropy Capital

Intelligent Giving, the charity evaluation and donor advice website, will close at the end of August because of a lack of funds, and its work will be taken over by another donor advice charity, New Philanthropy Capital (NPC). According to a press release from NPC, ‘NPC will take over the charity’s brand and website and look for ways to develop its message on transparency in the charity sector.’

Intelligent Giving was founded in 2006 by two former journalists, David Pitchford and Peter Heywood. Its website features over 500 UK charities, assigning them scores for the quality of reporting and transparency of their annual report and accounts. Pitchford says of the move, ‘NPC is the perfect choice to continue developing the work of Intelligent Giving. Our organizations share a mission: to increase the effectiveness of the charity sector.’
