Philanthropy can be a Solution to Making Localisation a Reality

July 11, 2022

As a long-term trend, accelerated by the response to Covid-19, the development cooperation and humanitarian aid sector have realised the urgent need to imagine and realise a better, more equitable, localised investment and deployment of resources.Localisation has been a word to describe that collective process through which a diverse range of stakeholders have a role to play, each in their own way, to ensure that the ownership of development efforts is held locally, with accountability to domestic constituents versus international donors for the planning, delivery and assessment of their communities' and country's development. Philanthropy as a stakeholder has a key role to play in making localisation a reality.This policy briefing is offered as a think piece to prompt further, future reflection by international and domestic actors in development cooperation and humanitarian aid about how they each can act to reinforce local philanthropy to further genuine and sustainable localisation.

FROM SCARCITY TO ABUNDANCE: MAPPING THE GIVING ECOSYSTEM

July 8, 2022

Despite concerns from across the social sector, the reality is that the giving ecosystem is characterized by abundance, with the overwhelming majority of people actively participating in it through acts of generosity of all shapes and sizes.The commitment people show to supporting their communities is not an abstract and separate culture - when communities care for themselves, they need institutions less. There is a need for a robust and relevant data environment that captures all of the giving happening around us. And outreach activities that reflect and leverage the true richness, diversity, and strength of the giving ecosystem.The report sets out an approach to measuring and understanding the generosity ecosystem. Establishing new baselines and new metrics and beginning to draw new conclusions. The report offers a snapshot of the past year in giving, yet more importantly, it lays a foundation that will permit to track trends and generate real-time insightsin the future.

Centering equity and justice in climate philanthropy

June 9, 2022

Despite its urgency and potential, according to available funding data, most institutional funders do not incorporate climate or climate justice strategies into their work, largely relegating it to a few environmental funders. As a result of underestimating its importance and its connection to other philanthropic priorities, not enough funding is flowing to climate change efforts and even less of it for reducing harm to communities most impacted by the climate crisis.This field guide for funders identifies common barriers to supporting climate justice strategies, describes ways to overcome them, and shares insights and case studies from experienced funders who have helped their institutions use a climate justice lens for greater impact within their existing grantmaking priorities.

Charity in times of war

June 6, 2022

The full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine in one way or another has significantly affected all life processes in the country. The charity and civil society were no exception and were among the first mechanisms that managed to quickly mobilize and adapt their work to the challenges of wartime.In the short period since February 24, many changes have taken place in the field of charity. Many new volunteer, community-based and charitable organizations and initiatives have been established. The existing organizations changed the focus of their main activity. At the same time, there is an unprecedented increase in the number of donations and support for the sector.In addition to the changes, there are a number of challenges faced by representatives of Ukrainian charity – including logistical difficulties, loss of staff due to evacuation, inability to continue ongoing projects or consolidate efforts and resources to implement statutory activities due to a general change in priorities.However, all changes and developments should be thoroughly systematized and verified to assess their feasibility and scale. Consistent research and relevant data enable choosing the most appropriate strategy for working with the sector, which certainly needs support.Keeping our hands on the pulse of Ukrainian philanthropy, we at Zagoriy Foundation decided to conduct a qualitative study of the sector during the full-scale war to identify and describe the main changes and trends and contribute to effective development and support of the sector.
