Why do you think giving is important?

AM: To have, is to have a responsibility to give, particularly when you have more than you need.

We all have different things to share with each other. For some it’s financial resources, others wisdom, stories, lessons etc. and when we share our resources generously and intentionally, the rising tide lifts us all.

In terms of your own personal giving, which cause areas are most important to you and why?

Environment, equality and disadvantage – by supporting both those who are working to change the systems and those assisting direct urgent needs. These are areas where the challenges can seem enormous, but at the same time, even small grants can have an outsized impact.
