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.
