This report has been prepared for the WINGS Cultures of Giving Working Group by Natasha Matic from the King Khalid Foundation and Atallah Kuttab from SAANED for Philanthropy Advisory. 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.
The 2021 "Comparative Highlights of Foundation Laws" provides a broad, comparative overview of the diverse legal and fiscal environments of foundations – across 40 countries – as well as identifies relevant trends and developments.The report looks into how philanthropy in Europe is regulated from a comparative perspective, what legal requirements exist to establish a foundation, whether foundations can pursue only public-benefit or also private purposes, what governance requirements are set out, what forms of tax incentives exist to encourage philanthropic organisations and giving and how this differs across the continent or what impact anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism legislation has on the European philanthropy sector.
The guide shows how a philanthropy support ecosystem can be built. It uses a suite of tools and approaches that can be adapted by people in different countries to build the system that they want, by mapping relationships between organisations and sorting out who does what in order to lift up philanthropy. It is designed to allow for creativity and invention. The goal is to inspire the field by suggesting ways in which its work can be enhanced, rather than providing hard and fast rules. Although specific steps are suggested, these do not imply a rigid process that needs to be followed. Action depends on the context and the particular needs of the philanthropic sector.
This study examines philanthropy support organisations (PSOs) in India, Russia and Kenya, to understand their role in driving the growth and development of philanthropy, giving, and private social investment in these countries. The study examines the development of the sector in each country, by assessing its size, scope and other characteristics. There is some attempt to understand the individual and collective impact of PSOs in each country.
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.
Measuring the added value of the PSE is an integral feature of strengthening it. Measurement involves using five-point scales to assess the attainment of the 4Cs – capacity, capability, connection, and credibility. A variety of statistical methods are suggested to accomplish this. The results in this document will enable people to decide what action to take to enhance the PSE in their country.
This research shows how Philanthropy Support Organisations (PSOs) contribute to long-term social change by examining their purposes, functions, and impact. While the full research report is long, we have prepared this 'sneak peek', so that you can see the main takeaways easily.The research shows how to build a robust Philanthropy Support Ecosystem (PSE) to unlock the potential of philanthropy. It uses a suite of tools and approaches adaptable to different countries. Results will enable domestic foundations and donors, existing PSO leaders and other stakeholders to build the ecosystem they want.
The Cultures of Giving working group started in January 2018. Its work is a continuation of a series of efforts underway since 2010 when WINGS published its report on global philanthropy. The main conclusion of that report was that global philanthropy is not the model that existed in some of the industrial countries and propagated through grantmaking to therest of the world, but a tapestry of practices from around the world that are diverse, with similarities and differences, and yet forms a rich mosaic of the practices reflecting local cultures and practices.
This report has been prepared for the WINGS Cultures of Giving Working Group by Roman Sklotskiy from the Center for Philanthropy Development of the Vladimir Potanin Foundation. 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.
This publication is a collection of four articles developd with the collaboration of the communicators involved in the organizations associated to the Brazilian Philanthropy Network for Social Justice (Network). These pieces are the result of collective interviews held in mid-2020 with the aim of mapping and reviewing the communication challenges faced by community philanthropy and philanthropy for social justice, as well as highlighting the communication strategies developed by community and issue-oriented funds comprising the Network.
This study examines the path trailed by civil society and Brazilian philanthropy since the 1980s, which is crucial to the understanding of the dynamics and trends that support one of the theses developed throughout this work: civil society as a strategic element in the consolidation process of Brazilian democracy. Civil society organizations (CSOs) faced, in recent years, numerous reputation attacks and challenges concerning their political and financial sustainability. Faced with the Covid-19 crisis, they sought not only to oppose the prevailing denial and necropolitics through the construction of political agendas and networking, but also to produce responses based on the development of a set of practices and experiences founded on self-management and community organization. From a study of multiple cases, conducted with institutions selected according to the established criteria, it was determined that the CSOs were capable of building agendas, narratives, languages and forms of production and organization based on self-management, experiences based on a social dynamic where work and politics tend to coincide, as part of a process involving, at the same time, the organization of activism and production. They found independent ways to provide innovative responses to the crisis, coordinating actors, territories and communities, initiatives and resources, and searching for solutions involving everything from the distribution of food baskets to conducting information and humanitarian aid campaigns, in addition to conceiving innovative activism and resistance strategies, in the face of an adverse scenario.
