In 2012, the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Jeremy Hunt (later Maria Miller) asked Matthew Bowcock to prepare a report into the future of Digital Giving in the Arts as one of three reports exploring the future potential of philanthropy.
Matthew Bowcock believes that everyone is a potential philanthropist. This reinforces my view that we should not regard philanthropy as solely being about getting the rich to give more. Everyone has the opportunity to give, whether time or money……. I would encourage all arts and heritage bodies to read this report. Maria Miller, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport
