Migrant groups provide extensive help to communities in their countries of origin through regularly sending back money, and remittances constitute important aid for low-income countries.  Yet UK surveys of giving fail to include questions on remitting, with the result that very little is known about the comparative generosity of migrants and there is a lack of evidence to support tax policy towards remitting and a streamlining of the administrative process.  Trust for London has funded the Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy (CGAP) at Cass Business School to explore the economic and social circumstances of remitters, to compare their remitting with charitable giving and to consider the potential for a more equitable treatment of charitable donations and remittances.
