Historical Data


Covering the period between January 2014 and March 2018, the report evaluates 79 countries and economies across five key factors that measure the ease with which philanthropic organizations can operate, as well as policies that affect giving—both within countries and across borders. This includes in-depth research on the incentives and barriers that individuals and organizations face when donating to social causes or institutions within a certain country or abroad.

Two-fifths of the 79 countries and economies included in the report have a restrictive philanthropic environment, while about three-fifths of the environments are favorable to philanthropy.
