  5. 5. Giving – Find out more from some of our Key Individual Donors My giving is more strategic thanks to a range of philanthropy advisors and professionals in institutions such as CAF. They help me to structure my annual giving which is focused primarily on institution building and sustainability. They help me in my journey from being a compassionate giver to being a strategic investor. In spite of being an integral part of the development sector in India, I still consult CAF before I decide on a gift. Their knowledge, validation of charities, grant making processes and professional reporting are invaluable for donors. I champion giving and organisations such as CAF every day for all they do to make our world a better place – tax efficiency, effectiveness all aside.
