Philanthropy: Give and let live | The Economist

Philanthropy: Give and let live | The Economist: "SINCE Jeremy Hunt was appointed culture secretary, he has talked a lot about how to encourage charitable gifts and philanthropy in Britain. Until recently, this amounted to little more than chat. Now he is actually taking some steps to foster giving.

This week the government published proposals aimed at convincing individuals to donate works of art and other historical objects to the nation, in return for a tax break. This seeks to do two things: to enhance public collections and keep precious artefacts in Britain; and to encourage a culture of giving."
