Private Philanthropy for Development – Second Edition
Data for Action
This second edition of Private Philanthropy for Development aims to meet the growing
demand for open, reliable and comparable data on philanthropic giving. Compared to
the first edition, it collected more data from large foundations and other organisations
based in developing countries to have a more comprehensive understanding of cross-border
financing and domestic giving.
The report analyses philanthropic flows by geography, sector and thematic area, explores
how these flows are implemented and compares their scope to official development assistance
(ODA). It dives deeper into foundations’ strategies for mobilising additional resources
through their assets and philanthropic capital; looks at their engagement in advocacy
to amplify and sustain their impact; and studies their approaches to learning and
knowledge production through monitoring and evaluation.
The report unpacks unprecedented data on philanthropy’s contribution to developing
countries, which will be critical for development actors, including governments, ODA
providers and foundations, to better co-ordinate their actions, exploit synergies
and play to their best comparative advantage en route to a sustainable recovery.
