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.

This study is a continuation of the research on individual giving and philanthropy in Turkey conducted in 2004, 2015 and 2019 by TÜSEV. The main goals of this research are to provide an overview of: individuals' perceptions of civil society organisations in Turkey; their engagement with CSOs; giving practices, and to track behaviors and trends in these areas through time. For this study as for previous ones, the authors and research team have collected and analysed data from interviews with a representative sample of the voting-age population in Turkey. The fieldwork for this report focused on the year before October-November 2021, a period of significant challenges including Covid-19, lockdowns and natural disasters. The authors take into account the impact of these events in their evaluation of how both the giving behavior and the attitude toward civil society and philanthropic activities in general have developed and changed. The report also provides a comparative analysis of the change that took place in the field of individual giving in Turkey over a 15-year period.Previous studies can be accessed from TÜSEV website: https://www.tusev.org.tr/en/research-andpublications/online-publications
The International Philanthropy Commitment on Climate Change is a call to all foundations, regardless of their mission, status and geographic location to act on the climate emergency. Signatories to the International Commitment pledge to take action under the seven pillars of the Commitment. This Implementation Guide outlines suggested actions against each of the seven pillars of the International Philanthropy Commitment on Climate Change. This Guide is designed to inspire and support foundation signatories as they embark on their own journey of change. If your foundation is not yet signed up to the International Commitment but considering doing so, this Guide will give you a clearer idea of the type of actions that foundations can take to implement the International Commitment.

Durante los últimos dos años, WINGS, el Centro de Filantropía e Inversiones Sociales de la Escuela de Gobierno de la Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (CEFIS UAI) y the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy of Indiana University, hemos trabajado en forma mancomunada para hacer posible una lectura amplia sobre los asuntos claves de la regulación del ciclo de vida de las entidades sin fines de lucro y de las normas para donaciones a asuntos de interés público. En el presente estudio se mapearon y analizaron los marcos legales y fiscales de 19 países que fijan las reglas para que la filantropía y las organizaciones sin fines de lucro puedan operar en América Latina y el Caribe.

For the past two years, WINGS, the Centro de Filantropía e Inversiones Sociales de la Escuela de Gobierno de la Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (CEFIS UAI) and the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy of Indiana University, have worked together to develop a comparative study on the legal frameworks in Latin America and the Caribbean that regulate donations and the life cycle of non-profit organisations. In this report, you will find detailed information from 19 countries that reveals what regulations hinder and which ones help philanthropy in the region.
This report has been prepared for the WINGS Cultures of Giving Working Group by Dr Abhijit Prabhughate and Dr Madhulika Tyagi at the Ashoka University Centre for Social Impact and Philanthropy (CSIP). The WINGS Cultures of Giving Working Group explores and shares the many different types and ways philanthropy exists in the WINGS network, as well as the diverse cultures of giving around the world.
For decades to come, 2020 will represent the year during which the world shifted into a new normal by being forced to adapt to a global pandemic. WINGS adapted to the challenge, offering spaces for sharing and coming together to our members at a time of great uncertainty and challenge. The year 2020 marked 20 years of us serving the global philanthropy field. We invite you to celebrate this important year for WINGS, our 20th anniversary. We feel energised to start this new cycle. A new cycle in which we are better positioned than ever to make a difference in critical times.
It is vital to be clear about the terms used in the philanthropy support ecosystem (PSE). Many words in philanthropy have imprecise meanings that lead to different understandings. In this study, we seek to build a standard terminology of PSE terms and PSO organisations so that findings may be intelligible, both within the PSE and outside it.
How to Build the Philanthropy Support Ecosystem (PSE) Working it out Together: Engaging Philanthropy Actors in Mapping and Strengthening their own EcosystemSeptember 8, 2021
This document offers a step-by-step guide on how to build the PSE. A four-stage process is suggested to map the PSE:1. Develop a team of people to undertake the work and to set objectives.2. Adapt the method to local circumstances by assembling key reports and talking to people with a good knowledge of the sector.3. Map the organisations and functions of the PSE and assess the relationships between them.4. Develop the vision for the PSE and decide on practical measures on how to pursue it.This should be treated as an outline guide to be used creatively, depending on local context. The process will depend on the resources available, which include time as well as money. This should be seen as a creative and organic process of development, rather than a fixed and mechanical project. The guide gives an organisational framework, as compared to a blueprint.
