Global private philanthropy funding for development is increasing. The 2030 Agenda shines a spotlight on its role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). And yet, the philanthropic sector remains insufficiently known, for lack of reliable, aggregated and comparable data.

The OECD Centre on Philanthropy will contribute to the global demand for more and better data and analysis on global philanthropy for development. It will seek to bring together relevant efforts from existing research centres and projects, expand the OECD database, and provide research and analysis on global trends and impact of philanthropy for development in the context of the 2030 Agenda.
