What the Pandemic Told Us About Giving

June 16, 2021

Based on a phenomenological investigation, this article seeks to illuminate the nature of the changes that have occurred in the Brazilian culture of giving ignited by the mobilization consequent to the impacts of Covid-19, as well as its patterns or permanence. This text seeks to portray part of the cultural movement of giving, so that the reader can see some of the essential features of the explored phenomenon (HOLDREDGE, 2005), reflecting and constructing their own images. The year 2020 was marked by a reflex-giving, however, its experimentation by many, hitherto non-donors, added to a deeper reflection on how it happens and what is generated by the way it is done. It has the potential to bring about significant changes for the years to come.

Giving to Pakistan: Guidelines for Donors

May 24, 2021

Pakistan is one of the fastest growing countries in the Asian region with a population of nearly 220 million people, with an estimated number of 49.5 million people living in poverty. These socio-economic conditions are the main driving source behind the estimated 15,000 to 20,000 nonprofits (NPOs) operating in the country. Almost 46% of NPOs work in education, and approximately 17% focus on civil rights and advocacy; the remainder provides social services in areas of health, relief, culture and recreation. Given this landscape, as well as the need to navigate the rules and regulations of both donor and recipient jurisdictions, especially from the perspective of a US donor and/or grant-maker, it is vital to have a comprehensive understanding of the local context, as well as the requirements and conditions impacting cross-border giving to Pakistan.We expect that these guidelines will be of value to the broad spectrum of donors, grant-makers and NPOs. I look forward to working together to further enhance cross-border philanthropic inflows to Pakistan.

This guide illustrates how the climate crisis impacts funding portfolios and highlights where there are co-benefits with taking climate action. It looks at five key areas that we call 'climate intersections.'The findings and suggestions in this report are meant to shine a light on how you as a funder can increase your impact by applying a climate lens to existing work. You know your portfolio best, and are therefore well placed to think through what these intersections mean for your work. The report is also interspersed with case studies on funders and select NGOs who are already applying this lens to their work.

Global Giving Circles

December 21, 2020

This is a very relevant study which highlights how this new, more democratic, and local form of giving is spreading. There are 426 giving circles (GC) outside the US and estimate that in 2018 they gave away a combined $45.74 million in grants and involved 42,200 members. Among many of the specific findings, we found global GCs to be more frequently connected to a GC network and more often to be independently run (vs hosted) than their US counterparts, to be overwhelmingly local in their focus, and overall much younger than their US counterparts with 92% founded in the last decade.

Charity in Times of Coronavirus

June 11, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic, in particular the strict lockdown, has affected every area of life in Ukraine. The charity is no exception. Did the charity stop during this period? Have charitable donations decreased? Who receives less help today, and who, on the contrary, benefits from increased help? Should we expect a reduction in the number of charitable initiatives when the lockdown is over?The nature and scale of the pandemic's impact on charity are best illustrated by the findings of a social survey initiated by Zagoriy Foundation within its Promoting the Culture of Charitable Giving in Ukraine program and conducted by the research company Socioinform in May this year. Representatives of 20 charitable organizations from all over Ukraine shared their thoughts on the changes taking place in charity and how their organizations feel through times of crisis.
