This week the 2022 Global Philanthropy Environment Index (GPEI) was released by Indiana university, Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). The index is the world’s largest and most comprehensive initiative to equip policy makers, philanthropic and nonprofit leaders, donors, the business community, and the public with a clear understanding of the environment for philanthropy worldwide. ACPNS Founder, Emeritus Professor Myles McGregor-Lowndes was one of more than 100 experts who contributed to this year’s report.
As stated on IUPUI’s website:
The GPEI provides the tools global leaders need to understand how and where the philanthropic environment is changing and evolving and—most importantly—how to maximise philanthropy’s ability to help solve pressing challenges. It is a one-of-a-kind global report prepared by more than 100 country-level experts who have assessed the environment for philanthropy in 91 countries and economies by examining the incentives and barriers to giving. The evaluation of the countries and economies that make up the GPEI helps reveal the complex ecosystem of regulations, politics and cultures that shape global philanthropy.
To celebrate the global launch of the report on 30 March 2022, a webinar will be held by experts at IUPUI explaining how to use the index and will include up-to-the-minute information on the global philanthropic environment.
