Published on 1 December 2023

This report attempts to provide an overview of philanthropy and the ‘philanthropic eco‐system’ that has evolved over the recent decade. Special focus of the report is on overseas philanthropy and philanthropic money for development causes. This report approaches the still heated debate around development and aid from various angles, bringing the perspectives of grantees and recipients of philanthropic development resources to the table as well as those of funders and donors. It represents an aggregation of available data on resources and money flows as well as an extensive qualitative analysis of the philanthropic eco‐system based on in‐depth interviews with leading experts.
