Private philanthropic giving from individuals, corporations and foundations contri-butes a significant proportion to value flows related to development aid and other social change efforts. Private sector actors are important sources of funding to NGOs and multilateral organizations – either working for causes in their home societies or seeking to improve the lives of poorer groups in developing countries. In many cases, they provide occasional donations, and also establish long-term partnerships with non-profits, foundations, and government stakeholders.
This white paper provides an overview on giving practices in the private sector. By summarizing existing literature and drawing on secondary data, it explores the variety of private philanthropy across regions and by donor type. Additionally, it outlines emerging new waves and concerns for private philanthropy.
