It is no surprise that wealthy and well-connected people, in particular business men and women, may decide that establishing their own charity is the most effective way for them to deliver the highest impact. Usually they have considered their options and decided that, rather than give to inefficient organisations, their money could be put to better use remaining in their own control and benefitting from the skills and acumen that enabled them to build their fortunes in the first place.
