About Charities Advisory Trust

The Charities Advisory Trust is dedicated to finding practical methods of redressing inequalities and injustice. It is an innovative organisation that pioneers new ways of ways raising money and helps hundreds of different charities throughout the year.

CAT runs a number of operations including:

Good Gifts Catalogue: in autumn 2003, CAT launched the Good Gifts Catalogue, a radical concept in giving, employing charitable donations to buy imaginative gifts like 'goats for peace' and acres of threatened rain forest. The soaring success of the idea has not only generated many millions of pounds, but also a slew of imitations. However, Good Gifts remains the catalogue committed to the principle of actually buying the gifts stated, rather than using the income for general purposes.
