Individual giving in India, Russia, the Arab region and Brazil

June 30, 2019

Individual giving in India, Russia, the Arab region and Brazil is part of PSJP's Philanthropy Study. Previously the study has focused on producing a series of papers on philanthropy in four emerging market countries/regions – India, Russia, the Arab region and Brazil. These studies have taken a broad view of philanthropy, encompassing everything from individual giving (by the very wealthy and by people of more modest means, including crowdfunding) to giving by private and corporate foundations, CSR, community philanthropy, social justice philanthropy, self-funded movements and impact investing.The current paper looks at individual giving by ordinary people in these countries/ regions in more depth. Seen as an area of great promise in India and Russia, it is at an earlier stage in Brazil. In the Arab region giving to the social sector is barely making headway, though traditional giving is very much alive.

Leadership and Development: Paper 2 in PSJP’s Defining Key Concepts Series

March 12, 2019

This is the second paper in PSJP's Defining Key Concepts series and it looks at the concept of 'leadership' in development and philanthropy. (The first paper, published in October 2018, looked at the concept of Dignity.) Although widely used, and viewed as an important ingredient in successful philanthropy and development, there is no common understanding of what people mean by the term leadership or how its value is demonstrated in practice. In March 2018, when PSJP ran an exploratory webinar for civil society practitioners to identify hot topics they wanted to discuss, leadership was identified because people said that they were unclear about its role.

Philanthropy in India

October 1, 2017

This report on Indian philanthropy is based on a study that started in 2016. It is part of a larger study in other emerging economies to review the current state of philanthropy and what role it is playing in the world. This is the first report from the study, which we hope will eventually form part of the Philanthropy Bridge Series.The study does not attempt to address the acknowledged lack of comprehensive and reliable data on philanthropy in India. Rather it aims to throw light on the current state of Indian philanthropy through conversations with people who have been trying to promote, support or strengthen different areas of philanthropy. This includes various forms of giving by the wealthy; social justice philanthropy, self-funded activist movements and community philanthropy; and giving by individuals of modest means.

Grantmaking for Social Justice and Peace: Approaches Drawn from Shared Practice

January 1, 2016

This study aims to share the experiences and practices of many different funders and, in doing so, to encourage self reflection. Whether it is framing priority issues, designing grant programmes or listing selection criteria, each of these steps either includes or excludes options for change. What are often seen as technical considerations can, in fact, be incredibly important in identifying potential grantee and collaborative partners. Power does not only lie in foundation boards and chief executives, it is also found in the niches of programme decision making, outreach and administration.

Philanthropy for Social Justice and Peace: A Summary Report from Latin America and the Caribbean

September 25, 2014

The report is based on findings of a project we started in 2013, which included interviews, a survey and a convening of social justice and peace philanthropy practitioners in Bogota in May 2013. The purpose of the project was to map an emerging body of foundations that are providing resources for movements for structural and systemic transformation in the region.The study reveals that the region is today dotted with small indigenous philanthropic institutions that identify themselves as women's funds, community foundations, human rights funds. While they are often set up with international funding, they are characterised by a shared commitment to social justice in the region, support for a social change agenda that is locally owned and driven, and a commitment to long-term work towards the change they seek.The report is, by no means, a comprehensive picture of the field in the region
