Titles in the Casebook on series provide readers with a comprehensive selection of case law extracts for their studies. Extracts have been chosen from a wide range of historical and contemporary cases to illustrate the reasoning processes of the courts and to show how legal principles are developed. This chapter discusses the legal definition of charity and how it differs from everyday notions of charity. It considers the advantages of charitable status; examine limits on the recognition of charitable trusts, including the requirement that purposes be exclusively charitable, not-for-profit, and non-political; considers whether certain categories of purpose should be presumed charitable, and which categories they might be; determines whether the recognition of charitable status turns upon whether the particular purpose is sufficiently beneficial to the public; outlines the administration of charitable trusts; and considers the impact of the Charities Act 2006.
