This chapter looks at issues and trends in the foundation-funding market in the UK, largely from the viewpoint of foundations themselves. It begins by briefly sketching the outlines of the UK foundation sector, identifying numbers, key types and patterns of spending. The second section outlines some key phases in the history of foundation approaches, some cultural characteristics and common criticisms. The third section looks at current issues and developments, and speculates about future trends likely to affect foundation funding. These issues are of importance to fundraisers in understanding the shape and nature of the foundation market and the ways in which they engage in that market.
