About this grant

The program goal is to foster the development of a conducive environment for philanthropy across countries by providing rigorous, comparative data and raising awareness and understanding of philanthropy, especially in developing countries. The Global Philanthropy Environment Index provides a framework for a comparative assessment of the philanthropic environment at the country level and allows for a global conversation on this important topic. Its findings help nonprofit leaders, scholars and policy makers to gain a thorough understanding of the evolving environment at the country, region and global levels, and to advocate for a more supportive environment for philanthropy worldwide. The Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University was founded in 2012. Its mission is to increase the understanding of philanthropy and improve its practice worldwide through critical inquiry, interdisciplinary research, teaching, training and civic engagement.
