In 2015, the Hudson Institute's Center for Global Prosperity (CGP) published the first edition of the Index of Philanthropic Freedom (IPF). The IPF, which scores and ranks 64 countries on their enabling environments for philanthropy, is based on the detailed responses of country experts to a seven question survey produced by CGP in consultation with survey design experts. This document provides 21 of the 64 country expert reports received by the Center for Global Prosperity. It was prepared for Worldwide Initiatives for Grantmaker SupportInternational Meeting on the Enabling Environment for Philanthropy in Lisbon, Portugal, March 10th - 11th 2016.
The Index of Philanthropic Freedom 2015 is the first analysis of philanthropic freedom across the world. By examining barriers and incentives for individuals and organizations to donate money and time to social causes, CGP has measured, ranked, and compared countries on their ease of giving. The research is a major step in identifying the public policy actions to encourage private giving which, in turn, can increase generosity.
- Edited Transcript -Event DescriptionAs many of you know, we are about to close the doors on the Bradley Center for Philanthropy and Civil Society, after 12 years of operation and 148 panel discussions on all aspects of philanthropy and the nonprofit sector, approaching them from a rich variety of disciplines and points of view. Nothing could be more appropriate for our final panel than to turn our attention to the proudest claim of the modern American foundation: namely, that it practices philanthropy -- it solves problems at their source -- as opposed to charity, which merely puts band-aids on problems.We commissioned the first thoroughgoing historical monograph on this topic from Benjamin Soskis, a Fellow at George Mason's Center for Nonprofit Management, Philanthropy and Policy. To discuss this major addition to the scholarship on philanthropy and civil society, we assembled a distinguished panel, including Case Western Reserve Professor David Hammack, Patty Stonesifer, formerly of the Gates Foundation, and Scott Walter of the Capital Research Center. Hudson Institute Senior Fellow William Schambra moderated this event.
The staff at Hudson's Center for Global Prosperity (CGP) is delighted to present the first analysis of philanthropic freedom across the world. In this 13 country pilot study, we examine barriers and incentives for individuals and organizations to donate resources to social causes. CGP scored and compared countries on their ease of giving by collecting detailed information on three main indicators: the ease of registering and operating civil society organizations (CSOs); domestic tax policies for deductions, credits, and exemptions; and, the ease of sending and receiving cash and in-kind goods across borders. This research is a major step in helping countries identify policy changes that will encourage philanthropy, the goal of this study.
The Center for Global Prosperity (CGP) at Hudson Institute is pleased to present the 2013 Index of Global Philanthropy and Remittances. This edition, our eighth Index, continues to show the growth in philanthropy, remittances and private investment throughout the world. It continues to show how private financial flows have surpassed government aid, and how new forms of giving are redefining foreign assistance and economic growth. This year's Index is a groundbreaking initiative which is supported by Canada's International Development Research Centre. CGP has measured the private financial flows of selected emerging economies to the developing world. Through partnerships with philanthropic institutions in Brazil, China, India, and South Africa, we have measured and reported on these countries' government aid, philanthropy, remittances and private investment to developing countries. Along with our data from developed countries over the last 8 years on these same financial flows, we can present a more complete picture of countries' total economic engagement with the developing world.
This year's Index of Global Philanthropy and Remittances chronicles the continued growth of private financial flows to the developing world and how new forms of giving are poised to change the face of international philanthropy and global foreign aid as we know it today.
Provides an annual update on the sources and scope of U.S. and international private giving to the developing world. Highlights trends in government aid, private philanthropy and investment, public-private partnerships, and social entrepreneurship.
