Unlocking Cross-border Philanthropy in Asia: An Assessment of Donor Interest and Infrastructure Readiness

June 15, 2022

When Give2Asia was founded 20 years ago, international philanthropy primarily flowed in one direction, as donors in the West supported nonprofits in other locales. Strong tax incentives for charitable giving fueled a steady increase in overseas philanthropy.Today, the landscape of potential donors is far more diverse. With increasing levels of wealth across the Asia-Pacific, there is great potential to address pressing humanitarian needs by increasing funding flows between countries in the Global South.Produced in cooperation with the Asia Philanthropy Circle, King Baudouin Foundation, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, this report provides a roadmap for establishing a cross-border giving network for Asia.The multi-year research effort included interviews with 150 high-net-worth donors/institutions and survey responses from 135 nonprofits. The study aims to answer two key questions:1) Is there an appetite and need for infrastructure that supports cross-border giving within Asia?2) If so, what institutions might participate in building it, and where?

May 31, 2022

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:

THE GIVING ENVIRONMENT: Understanding Pre-Pandemic Trends in Charitable Giving

July 1, 2021

The year 2020 was one of the most impactful years for our contemporary global society. In what is considered one of the most severe public health crises since the 1918 flu pandemic, the COVID-19 pandemic affected every country worldwide and shut down many of the world's largest economies, including the United States. In the United States, the effects of the pandemic were compounded by the heightened national awareness about racial and social injustices and inequalities. The combined effects of these economic, political, and social shifts affected every sector, including the nonprofit sector. The economic shocks from the global COVID-19 pandemic have disrupted normal giving patterns in ways that we do not yet fully understand.The goal of The Giving Environment report series is to provide data and analysis to better understand the causes and implications of the decline in donor participation shortly before the significant societal changes that took place in the United States in 2020, while also exploring the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the movements for social and racial justice on individual giving decisions moving forward.
