Transfer from Hudson Institute

The Hudson Institute’s Center for Global Prosperity first published The Index for Global Philanthropy and Remittances in 2006. The Index for Philanthropic Freedom was launched by the Hudson Institute in 2015.

For over 10 years, these global philanthropic indices provided in-depth analyses on the size and sources of cross-border giving and the incentives and barriers to philanthropy around the world.

In 2017, the publications were formally transferred to the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, which will continue to publish the reports under the titles the Global Philanthropy Environment Index and the Global Philanthropy Tracker.

At the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, the indices will continue to grow as vital markers of global philanthropy that equip policymakers, philanthropy and nonprofit leaders, business leaders, the news media, and the public with a clear understanding of the global philanthropic landscape.

The Global Philanthropy Indices provide the tools global leaders need to understand how and where the philanthropic environment is changing and evolving and—most importantly—to provide context as philanthropy works to solve pressing challenges.
