Ultra-wealthy See Giving As Necessary


    While some people view charitable giving as a nice thing to do, the overwhelming majority of ultra-wealthy individuals see charitable giving as a necessity, says an SEI poll. It reveals that 82 per cent of wealthy families believe that having more money means you have a greater obligation to be philanthropic. However, more than one in five of those polled (22 per cent) wonder if they are doing enough to make a difference. The survey reveals an increased desire among the ultra-wealthy to give a greater percentage of their wealth to charitable endeavours and to measure the impact of their donations more clearly.
