Abstract

In the UK, the Big Society programme seeks to encourage philanthropic giving. However, I argue that there is a tension between the Big Society's emphasis on citizen empowerment and the nature of emerging philanthropic relationships. Drawing upon a framework developed by Susan Ostrander (2007) this article maps and analyses three types of philanthropic relationships in the UK: (1) donor-intermediary; (2) donor exclusive; and (3) donor oversight. Analysing these philanthropic relationships is salient as it draws attention to the role of philanthropy in the reshaping of the relationship between state, market and civil society in the context of the Big Society.
